Liberal Wrongly 'Reads' Conservatives

A commenter at another site thought that I might be reading the same novel as he, because of my insight into something. I wasn't, and this was my reply:

rlc, I don’t know how everyone but me has time to read novels, with all the ball games and television that has to be watched.

That's not completely true. I don't read a lot of books, especially novels, but I do a lot of reading. The problem with most conservatives is that we actually have jobs and don't have the luxury to read by hanging out at coffee shops and lounging around the house. When we do read, it's a contract or research or a home repair book. We get more concerned about making it to the kid's ball game than reading up on the latest Republican conspiracy rumor. Frankly, most of us have lives and they don't.

Why am I bringing this up? Well, Patsy Schroeder* , president of the American Association of Publishers and a liberal, feminist, snivelling, Democratic former Colorado Congressman, was asked why liberals read more books than conservatives, and she responded with the following:

"The Karl Roves of the world have built a generation that just wants a couple slogans: 'No, don't raise my taxes, no new taxes. It's pretty hard to write a book saying, 'No new taxes, no new taxes, no new taxes' on every page." ...(Liberals tend to be policy wonks who) "can't say anything in less than paragraphs. We really want the whole picture, want to peel the onion."

Maybe Patsy should put down her crying towel long enough to look around and see that all that reading of the liberals aren't doing them much good, and that conservatives are making use of more practical reading. That doesn't mean that we can't enjoy a good novel from time-to-time, but typically with conservatives enjoyment comes after responsibility rather than the other way around.

Conservatives get snippets from magazines and the internet for issues of government and politics. I prefer the "executive version" of comments and won't read a comment from a liberal that exceeds 400 words, and most of them do because they're either trying to confuse people with a lot of verbosity or they're incapable of getting a point across in a few sentences.

If book publishers were not so overwhelmingly liberal, then maybe there would be more books that conservatives would want to buy and read. But, like everything that liberals do, they cannot take responsibility and, in the case of the president of their association, they blame conservatives for their disappointing sales rather than look at their product.

Maybe they need to read some business books on how to make money and not insult customers. What a sorry bunch of phony, elitist snobs.

Footnote: * Crying is seen as wimpy, unless it’s seen as a sign of strength. Former congresswoman Pat Schroeder (D-Colo.), who memorably broke down upon announcing that she would not seek the Democratic nomination for president in 1988, leading to assumptions that she was too emotional, says that after the incident, she kept a file of all politicians who cried publicly.

Next Day Additional, Additional Source: Boortz: LIBERALS READ MORE ... SO WHAT? - The fact is that non-fiction books by conservative authors consistently outsell books by liberals. ...Do you think that liberals read more books on business and investing than conservatives? Yeah .... Suuuuure they do. What does that leave us with? Liberals read more fiction than conservatives. Well, that fits. They live in an unreal fantasy world anyway. ... Wrong, Patsy. Liberals are just wordy. Their ideas are so inane and absurd they can't be efficiently expressed.
