Kathleen Paker has a typically stupid column which I won't link to in which we learn that Duck Dynasty had caused "our nation [to be] consumed anew with impassioned debate about nearly every foundational principle." Ah, yes, there's usually no disagreement about any of this stuff.

I have never quite managed to understand this weird DC notion that the goal of politics is to settle all questions once and for all and create a country that's united on every issue. That we can somehow end debate once and for all, and exist in a tipnronnie world where it's always 5 o'clock.

People disagree about stuff. They always will. It doesn't bother me.
