Separating the sheeple from the goats
This is so true:
It’s almost as if you have two options:
1. I disagree with my opponent’s position on taxation, and therefore I shall oppose it.
2. I disagree with my opponent’s position on taxation, and therefore I believe he has sex with goats.
The second option is ever so satisfying to the lone iconoclast: the fact that the mainstream media does not report the rumors about midnight goat-deliveries confirms your worldview.
Those who take option #1 are “sheeple.”
