Jane Smiley on "Why Americans Hate Democrats"

She calls it a dialog, but it seems to me more like a good, old fashioned frothing rant. We'll read lots more similar stuff if Barack Obama doesn't whip John McCain.

Here's a sample of her prose:
The history of the last four years shows that red state types, above all, do not want to be told what to do—they prefer to be ignorant. As a result, they are virtually unteachable.
It's from 2004, but like all classics, it's timeless.
