Smile! You're on Looney Camera!

An interesting piece from Americablog yesterday titled Our loonies versus their loonies. He talks about something I've long wondered about in political debate, the fact that left wing debaters are simply happier people than right wing ones.

Think about the vitriol and red-faced hatred thrown out in a debate, and you think of some right wing commentator (on Fox, or radio). Think of someone who has called for the assassination of an opponent, you think of Anne Coulter or Pat Robertson. Think of someone laughing and mocking their opponent, you think of Michael Moore or a host of folks talking on Air America.

You'd think all that anger and vein popping would result in a few heart attacks over there on sanctimonious mountain after a while, wouldn't you.

The rightwing is essentially built around greed and xenophobia--not traits that evoke a lot of merriment.

Amen to this!! After having to endure 45 minutes of sean hannity-by-default on the car radio today, i concluded that i absorbed enough spleen and bile to utterly derange my internal organs for the indefinite future. Is there an antidote to this poison somewhere?
