Abby Someone. Abby Who? Abby Normal.

Another fabulous entry in the “Are You Kidding?” sweepstakes, this one from Michael Barone, writing (apparently without irony) in the usually reputable US News & World Report:

“This is similar but not identical to a point I’ve often made: that the Republican Party is the party of people who are considered, by themselves and by others, as normal Americans—Northern white Protestants in the 19th century, married white Christians more recently—while the Democratic Party is the party of the out groups who are in some sense seen, by themselves and by others, as not normal—white Southerners and Catholic immigrants in the 19th century, blacks and white seculars more recently. Thus it’s natural for the Democrats to be more fissiparous.”

At least I learned a new word from this drivel: fissiparous — divisive, tending to break into parts.
