ERICKSON: When Disagreement Is Evil

I am continually struck by a question a friend on Twitter asked on that website. I come back to it every once in a while as news and events go in certain directions. He asked a simple question. He just wanted to know how many political reporters know anyone who owns a pickup truck.

It seems like a rather mundane question. After all, the top three best-selling vehicles in America are the Ford F-150, the Chevy Silverado and the Dodge Ram. All three are trucks. Very few political reporters gave a number. Most actually raged that it was an unfair question or they dared to pull the “how dare you” card suggesting their questioner dared to suggest they were out of touch. Their reaction proved just how out of touch they are.
