Wikileaks, information, and zealously holding on to one's idols

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.
The occasion for this post is a nice article on Wikileaks. But all of this points to broader issues:

A lot of people vote for Party X out of tradition and habit, devoting little thought to the process. And that’s fine: since each vote matters *so* little, why bother? But what about the people who spend considerable energy trying to justify avid support for horrible candidates?

The mental gymnastics required to support Trump are well-documented and obvious. But in the case of Clinton, it’s particularly interesting, because these are supposed to be the smart, tolerant folks. Is the related pathos greatest because of their…
a.) prudish self-righteousness
b.) ironic fundamentalism
c.) utter rejection of liberal values while still claiming (believing?) to be “liberal”

Anyway, it’s obvious that if we had a lot more liberals and conservatives, we’d have a much better political arena.
