“People hate being made to think,” the educator and classical scholar Edith Hamilton (1867-1963) once said. Laziness of mind is indeed easy to find, even more so today than in her time.

On Friday’s CNN Newsroom, weekend host Fareed Zakaria came on to promote his Sunday night special on Republicans titled A Radical Rebellion, and it quickly became another hit job on Fox News.

The Democratic Party’s radical, far-left faction is having a little problem with enemy identification. For many Democrats, it’s Israel and not the terrorists from Hamas who are the enemy.

“Ultra”-labeling bias reigned in Saturday’s New York Times, in which various political stories slammed “ultraconservative” Republicans in Congress, but coddled radical leftists like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with flattering labels. Reporter Catie Edmondson threw around labels left and (hard) right. She managed the mouthful “ultraconservative” twice in a single story on Rep.

Recent polling indicates that Kamala Harris is popular among Democrats and that’s pretty much it. Republicans don’t like her and neither do independent voters.
