29. Seriously, dude.

"If you feel compelled to convince yourself (and others) that anyone who supports a politician you don't like is dumb, ill-informed, and motivated-by-fear, you might want to think about your own apparent need to do so."

There is something really creepy about a need to insult, belittle, and question the intelligence of those who support a candidate you don't like, simply because you don't agree with their choice.

When you attack any politician on their record, that's fair game. When you are compelled to attack that politician's supporters - based on nothing of substance, but by way of stereotyping them based on your own imaginings - there is something very skewed in your thinking.
