Καθώς χάζευα τα περιεχόμενα του περιοδικού swindle, έπεσα σε μια συνέντευξη που ξεκινούσε κάπως έτσι:

Los Angeles native Tammy Bruce describes herself as “an openly gay, pro-choice, gun owning, pro-death penalty, authentic feminist.” 
She voted for President Bush, but was a “lifelong Democrat.” An oxymoron to say the least, she considers herself a classical liberal with conservative ideas.

Και ομολογώ ότι, αν και οι προβοκατόρικες εισαγωγές με προκαλούν να κοροϊδέψω, φτάνοντας στο τέλος με βρήκε, τουλάχιστον, σύμφωνο στο λόγο (βλέπε το παρακάτω απόσπασμα) που λέει ότι την οδήγησε σ' αυτή τη μικτή, αμφιλεγόμενη σε ύποπτο βαθμό, πολιτική στάση. Που το ότι έχει ένα υπερπετυχημένο ραδιοφωνικό τοκ-σόου, δείχνει ότι δεν την έβλαψε καθόλου επαγελματικά. Αντιθέτως...

“Groupthink” is a political term that addresses a type of behavior exhibited by close-knit groups who are so committed to conformity of thought, and believe they have sole possession of the truth, they deride and ultimately eliminate any critical thinking or challenges to the prevailing leadership point of view. When you believe that you have sole possession of the truth why should you speak to somebody else or why should you even consider what they have to say? You know everything and as a result those who dissent are to be punished and are dangerous.
