Michael concludes:
Ultimately, attacking people based on broken parables is much more attractive than actually getting people to think about issues. Why? Cognitive dissonance. You already have the answers you want, now you just look for ways to prove it.
I agree. Moderately intelligent people do this to exaggerate the depth of their intellectual despair. I'm for moral relativism to the extant that the guy in the room with his finger on the trigger is for it. However, staining a 13th Century legend with digital ink is unbecoming. It's also unbecoming to use a story based upon German emigration and prosperity to paint Obama supporters as fools.
