Shelly Whines... about 'liberal intolerance'

Oh, this is funny...

Now comes fascinating statistical evidence that the Left is indeed more hateful than the Right. Syracuse University professor Arthur Brooks writes in the WSJ today about annual surveys that shed light on just how unhinged liberals really are:
In 2004, the University of Michigan’s American National Election Studies (ANES) survey asked about 1,200 American adults to give their thermometer scores of various groups. People in this survey who called themselves “conservative” or “very conservative” did have a fairly low opinion of liberals — they gave them an average thermometer score of 39. The score that liberals give conservatives: 38. Looking only at people who said they are “extremely conservative” or “extremely liberal,” the right gave the left a score of 27; the left gives the right an icy 23. So much for the liberal tolerance edge.

WOW. A difference of one and a difference of four and suddenly, as if by magic, liberals are WAY more hateful that conservatives.

See, the problem with liberals is that they, on balance, tend to take attacks on little things, like the Constitution, very seriously. They tend to view those people as traitors and rightfully so. The question for Shelly is, why don't you?
