The "Typical" Leftist

The thing I value most about reading Dr. Sanity is that the articles are not based on psychobabble and platitudes, but sound behavioral and psychological principles.  As she usually does, in this article Dr. Pat peels aways the layers of confusion surrounding leftist ideology and motivation.  What happens when a party based on identity politics and always being a victim implodes because one class of victim collides with another?

The only legacy that the candidacy of Barack Obama is going to leave with the American people is one of racial polarization ;divisiveness; and identity politics taken to the nth degree. Amazingly, this could have been predicted at the very start of the campaign as the two Democrat-approved victim groups lined up to do battle for the nomination, each believing they represented the purist victims of the evils of the white male capitalist oppressors.

Read the entire article to get the clearest picture I've seen of how leftist ideas are veiled attempts at grabbing power and always end up hurting the people they claim are most in need of help.  If you read her regularly it becomes much simpler to understand why progressives inevitably make things worse.
