Every now and then we get these fund-raising letters from political parties that are a real insult to one's intelligence. You know the kind--one-sentence paragraphs and lots of underlining and bold type and capital letters and exclamation points. The kind that is often accompanied by a "political survey" with not-so-subtly loaded questions.
I was going to write a blog post about those fund-raising letters--something about the dumbing-down of American politics--but then I discovered that Bill Watterson of Calvin and Hobbes has already said what I have to say, and said it more succinctly. :)
