This was inspired by a conversation I had with a liberal comedian friend of mine earlier in the week. She’d been called a “racist” by a younger comic simply because she said that multiple violent offenders should be in jail. She then said to me, “Do you know how awful it is to be called a racist like that?” I just laughed and said, “That’s pretty much all liberals have been doing to conservatives for 11 years now.” It got me thinking about how numb I’ve become to the baseless slander and wondering whether I should be indignant about it.
We’ll do something more fun and less serious next episode.
