I think sometimes in our US vs. THEM political system, the "other" is often demonized to the extreme.
All democrats are baby-killing, treehugging, rich-taxing, welfare-dolling, socialists.
All republicans are god-fearing, SUV-driving, tax-cutting, war-mongering, racists.
I think that when a piece like this gets published - it can serve as a reminder that we're probably a lot more alike than different.
