Why is it…

…that any organization that calls itself “nonpartisan” is almost certain to be filled with Democrats?

    What about the Wisconsin Institute for Leadership? Surely they’re not filled with Democrats!

    Because everyone knows that Democrats are intelligent, tolerant, honest, and generally better than anyone else, especially Republicans. {/sarcasm}

    Bob, I’ve met liberals and conservatives who were intelligent, tolerant, and honest, and I’ve met folks from both sides of the political spectrum who were unkind, bigoted, and dishonest, so I think it cuts both ways.

    What Zach says.

    I’ve never found a person’s political persuasion to be particularly indicative of their character.

    Personally, I don’t like either extreme end of the spectrum, and don’t belong to any political party; I am more libertarian than anything. I do happen to run into more condescending and intolerant Democrats that are than I do Republicans around here. And I live in a state that is heavily Republican.

    Perhaps those who are Republican don’t feel that they can be, or even attempt to be, non-partisan.

    That wasn’t always so but it feels that way now. Look at the Fitzgerald boys backing themselves away from any responsibility or action toward a solution. If the rank and file take direction from their leadership you won’t see many stepping up to work across the aisle.

    Because we know the working press(titute) definition of “nonpartisan” is “whatever the Party of the Donkey wants”.
