There is no crisis in Liberalism.
There is, however, a crisis in American Liberalism. And I, a Big City Liberal from Toronto, Canada, have come to help you poor suckers out.
You see, in Canada Liberalism is an entirely different animal. We do not wring our hands and wonder what side of the issue we are on. We don't worry about how perhaps our ideological opponents might have a point. We're not impressed by cowboys or the rural lifestyle, and so we do not wonder if our political/ideological opponents possess an "authenticity" that we lack.
We know what we believe. And when it comes to dealing with our Conservative counterparts up here in Canada, we hunt them for dinner.
I have come to teach you to be like us. How to wear that sneer so it cuts like a surgeon's obsidian blade, and how to smite your ideological enemies with the humor, arrogance, and the smugness that is your birthright as liberals.
Listen good, my little Yankee cousins. The first lesson is to follow.
