As Digby says, the Villager discussion of self-described independent voters based on the presumption that they're all ideologically between the two parties somehow is maddening. People may think of themselves as independent for all kinds of reasons, but in my experience many of the people who do so just don't pay too much attention to politics. When ideology is the reason it's because they're fed up lefties or libertarians.
