Like most Democrats of her age group (’60s and ‘70s former hippies), she could not believe anyone would disagree with her opinions, condescendingly and arrogantly delivered.
And how well I know that mentality.
I was born in 1948.
Freshman year in college 1966.
The difference is, I dropped out two years later and enlisted in the Army, went to VietNam and came back to school in ‘73 with a very different perspective.
But I have a whole slew of acquaintances from that time who are exactly the ones of which you speak. Their intellectual weakness is surpassed only by their arrogance.
