A Vast Left Wing Conspiracy? I Wish

- The conspiracy where labor and environmental groups can hardly stand each other, and most progressive organizations have ghettoized themselves into special interests?
- The conspiracy where even the lefty blogosphere is divided into at least two camps that rarely link one another?
- The conspiracy where Democrats and Greens can hardly stop frothing at the mouth long enough to even talk to each other?
- The conspiracy where many prominent Democrats have made a cottage industry out of criticizing the Democratic party?
- The conspiracy where Republicans in Congress vote far more in unison than Democrats?
- The conspiracy where self-identifying Republicans vote far more in union than self-identifying Democrats in at least eight consecutive Presidential elections?
- The conspiracy where supposedly progressive think thanks and supposedly progressive universities and supposedly progressive professions don't even both to invite any progressive bloggers to panels about blogging?
- The conspiracy where conservative think tanks are quoted in the media four times more often than progressive think tanks?
- The conspiracy where conservatives utterly dominate the guest lists on Sunday morning talk shows?
- The conspiracy where two out of three Federal judges were appointed by Republicans, including eleven out of the last thirteen Supreme Court Justices?
- The conspiracy where Republicans regularly raise more money than Democrats?
