Well, Patsy, pamphlets at abortion clinics and protest signs don't count as books.
I'm not sure that I'd believe any poll put out by the Associated (Liberal) Press, but I think that there's a more fundamental flaw: Liberals have an overwhelming need to feel superior to everyone else. And Liberals lie constantly about everything. Put those two together, and how honest do you think they're going to be when speaking to a pollster?
"It's pretty hard to write a book saying, 'No new taxes, no new taxes, no new taxes' on every page."
No, that would be an easy book to write. To give Liberal writers their due, it is difficult to write a book that says "Conservatives are Nazis" in new and creative ways. Especially when its been said a million times already by a thousand other Liberal authors.
That quote also shows that Patsy hasn't actually read any Conservative books. She's no different than the people who declare Rush Limbaugh evil and "hate-filled"... but have never actually listened to his show. Like all liberals, she just believes what she's told (or has read...hmmm). The Conservative books that I've read focus on taxes for maybe 10% of their content. Most of the books are more focused on how the Left is doing everything in their power to destroy America with their push for Socialism.
OK, I admit that this is an ad hominem attack, but Patsy Schroeder is the girl who cried when she had to drop out of the Presidential race. And the reason that she had to drop out is because she is about as sharp as a marble. I don't know what she's been reading, but it hasn't increased her intelligence by any notable amount.
"Who are ya gonna believe...me or your lyin' eyes?" The Liberals that I know are certainly not big readers. They definitely don't read any more than Conservatives that I know. Quite a bit less, if anything. Personally, I have four different books going at the moment. That may be unusual, but I don't know one Conservative who doesn't have a book or two going at any given time.
And, unlike Patsy Schroeder, I actually listen to people on the other side. I regularly tune in to Air Unamerican radio. Some people think that it's masochistic of me to do so, but I've always found mental disorders fascinating - and it's like a mental institution broadcast to the world on that channel.
Most of the Liberals who call in to the Air Unamerican shows give the impression that they have to move their lips and follow along with their finger when they're reading Curious George. That is, if they're not too stoned to remember where they put the book. These are the people who think that Cindy Sheehan is, like, totally brilliant, you know?
A large part of the mental disorder of Liberalism is their obsessive need to feel more intelligent than other people. It's because somewhere deep inside they suspect that they're really not as smart as their counterparts on the Right. It's the insecurity that you can see in any child and, as we all know, Liberals from Marx to Clinton are nothing more than emotionally stunted children in adult bodies.
And so, a biased poll comes out, Patsy Schroeder reads what she wants to into it, and waves it about like a bloody flag because, in her eyes and the eyes of her political/mental equals, it "proves" that they're smarter than their hated adversaries.
