Because every conversation, on any topic, turns political these days it seems most have isolated themselves from differing opinions to just avoid the trouble. That creates nothing more than an endless navel-gazing echo chamber. But a chance encounter with a Ranchero-ized metallic green Lincoln Continental was a reminder there's a place pluralism still reigns.
It's gotten to where you can't even turn on Monday Night Football without getting into a heated political discussion. Obama's a Nazi. Rick Perry's a Fascist. Nancy Pelosi's the devil. Eric Cantor's a Terminator robot sent from the future to destroy humanity.
