Say It Isn't So!

Just when you've given up all hope, the newspaper that you had given up as a lost cause suddenly redeems itself with one sentence in the context of an op-ed piece about the upcoming Supreme Court appointee debates:

In fact it is the story of our time, little noted, little appreciated, but now impossible to ignore: There is no grand Right-wing conspiracy. There are as many factions on the Right as there are on the Left, and in the past several days the various strains of conservatism have been on full display.
Can you find the key sentence here? Take another look. Which one is it?

There is no grand Right-wing conspiracy.

Good! Now say that again.


There is no grand Right-wing conspiracy.

Once more.


There is no grand Right-wing conspiracy.

Is anyone else listening? Are there any Lefties so blinded by hatred and paranoia that they can't see that the Right is not one big consensus of opinion? The rest of the piece, by PG Executive Editor David M. Shribman, is just as insightful and well worth a read.
