We have a winner!

Kevin Drum stumbles onto truth:

And finally, a fourth possibility is simply that liberals are wrong. We interact very little with conservative institutions (churches, business groups, etc.) and therefore don't understand them, while conservatives have no choice but to interact with liberal institutions (Hollywood, academia, etc.).

As my grandmother used to say, "Even a blind sow finds an acorn now and then."

Whenever anyone talks about "epistemic closure" I immediately assume that they're both very liberal and all but totally epistemicly closed due to a total lack of interaction with actual conservatives [as opposed to the distorted idea of a conservative they have created in their minds]. Essentially all of my liberal friends [and I have a lot of them] refuse to believe that I'm not a conservative [I'm a libertarian/anarchist] because I sometimes disagree with them. It's sad, really.

Kevin Drum really typifies the real epistemic closure problem.

ROFL! Read the comments to see liberal heads explode in predictable (to a conservative) denial.
