Why exactly is it that one’s right leaning parents and relatives feel so free to send along emails laden with "convincing" arguments about the elitism of the left, Bush’s leadership qualities, and why gays are the root source of Our National Discomfortude?

I used to think I was alone in this, but Maureen Dowd’s column this weekend made me think otherwise.

I don’t send Dad clippings from the Nation or bon mots of Atrios. Why does he feel obligated to forward on to me Pete Du Pont’s latest from the Wall Street Journal?

(I’d link to it, but it’s the WSJ so I can’t. And why would I want to anyway?)

(BTW – always nice to see the likes of Pete Du Pont, who’s a virtuoso at the leap between the private sector and govt, rattling on about the "northeastern liberal elite"…

Heir to a chemical fortune, former governor of Vermont = just folks.
