LIBERTARIANS....Via Dan Drezner, cartoonist Berke Breathed explains his political temperament:

If you'll read the subtext for many of those old strips, you'll find the heart of an old-fashioned Libertarian. And I'd be a Libertarian, if they weren't all a bunch of tax-dodging professional whiners.

Yeah, there's that. Plus the fact that so many of them seem to have about the same level of insight into human nature as your average Marxist academic with wire hair sprouting out of his ears.*

*Description of Marxist academics stolen from Tom Wolfe.
