Blue Open-Mindedness
By Mike Rappaport

An enjoyable piece about what its like to be a Republican in an "open minded" and "tolerant" Blue community. (Hat tip: Stephen Bainbridge.) I don't know LA very well, but the description makes it sound very much like New York City. Recently, I visited friends and family there, all on the Upper West Side. Several Republicans told stories about how they kept their views to themselves to avoid the hostility of the dominant majority. It appears that the liberals have no idea that they are behaving as intolerantly as their believe Red State-ers behave.
