Pat Schroeder, Meet Markos Moulitsas

Pat Schroeder, formerly the teary-eyed liberal Member of Congress from Colorado, is now the head of the American Association of Publishers. She recently said that conservatives aren't really bright enough to understand anything but the simplest of books:

"The Karl Roves of the world have built a generation that just wants a couple slogans: 'No, don't raise my taxes, no new taxes,'" Pat Schroeder, president of the American Association of Publishers, said in a recent interview. "It's pretty hard to write a book saying, 'No new taxes, no new taxes, no new taxes' on every page..."

She said liberals tend to be policy wonks who "can't say anything in less than paragraphs. We really want the whole picture, want to peel the onion."
Come on Pat, don't flatter yourself. You only have to go as far as a post today by Markos Moulitsas of the DailyKos to see just how wrong you are. This is what he had to say about a scholarly essay by Bobby Jindal, after distorting the piece massively so his readers wouldn't be forced to 'peel the onion' for themselves:
Summary: My church is big and old and can kick your church's ass.

There's more, but the piece is pretty much unreadable. It looks impressive if you are easily impressed by cites and the such...

'Cites and such.' Those pointy-headed intellectual conservatives sure are annoying!

I may not be smart like Pat Schroeder, but I can only come up with two possibilities: the readers of DailyKos aren't liberal, or not all liberals are the intellectual heavyweights Schroeder seems to think they are.

Being called stupid by Pat Schroeder is the old being called ugly by a frog, only Pat is both ugly and stupid.

She is one of those airheads that give even liberals a bad name. This creature used to put smiley-faces next to her name when in Congress. She gained notoriety when she wept as she gave up an ill-considered attempt at the Presidency. What happened to empty-headed liberals happened to her---a faineant job for an incompetent idiot who never did do a decent day's work in her life. Wonder what they pay this ancient fossil for insulting readers of conservative books? But then, this association probably has zero influence anywhere and is now in the minus-column as to leadership with this bozette in charge.

This prattling smiley-face LOOOOZER says liberals read a lot more than conservatives---citing exactly one poll to back up her errant nonsense.

Schroeder, like many other preening ninnies who style themselves "liberals," get high sniffing their own flatulence.

And Schroeder, best known for her fatuous tears, now also is known for bashing part of her own constituency as the head of a non-profit.

And getting high sniffing her own farts.
