Morality in the Political Cement Mixer


The moral equivalent to tar and feathering is the demonization of political candidates we despise. Increasingly,we settle on our favorites and damn opponents not only for their point of view but for everything about them. Snoopy television and scandal exposures on the internet have helped scare up both legitimate wrongdoing and sensational nonsense with which to pillory our foes beyond the scope of what was possible even 50 years ago. Manichean politics is in the ascendency.
