Lazy Partisanship

Scott Payne laments:

...hyper-partisanship requires very little of us, aside from a willingness to swaddle conventional wisdom in the cloths of self-righteous arrogance. Inasmuch as the human condition is lined with greater demonstrations of sinking to common denominators than rising to potential expectations, the Durdenesque fight club of hyper-partisanship is a sadly predictable state of affairs.
