      1. Well, obviously, I’m not really part of the audience that joke is aimed at. It smacks of a liberals vs. conservatives argument, and I have stated several times that I am neither. (I’ve also said a few times I am right in the midst of many dichotomies people have bitter, bitter arguments about.) For the most part, I am me, and so belabored statements of identity, especially those that are defined by dichotomy (us vs. them, for us/against us, etc.) leave me cold.
