Who Are the Real Dividers?

CBS's Dick Meyer is convinced that polarization in America is all the fault of the mean old Republicans.

It's apparently easy for Meyer to overlook the Democrats' "people vs. the powerful" and class warfare dialogue, the constant race baiting of Democrats like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and the consistent efforts of the feminists to create a battle of the sexes. And don't even think of the way they've tried to convince the American people that the war is all about "big oil."

Somehow, for people like Meyer, when Democrats divide, they're only standing up for the oppressed. When Republicans do it, it's all a part of a pernicious plot. Well, it's easy to stick with a comforting thesis like that, especially after you overlook all the contradictory evidence.
