Is there a worldview in American politics that works?

Mallory Ortberg’s deeply conservative profile in The New Yorker this month will inspire debate about the two political parties. On one hand, Democrats are rattled by the confirmation prospects of Brett Kavanaugh and are arguing that the men and women in the Senate should listen to more people’s opinions — especially women’s. And Trump ran on a promise of women’s empowerment, and his party has largely picked its base fight.

On the other hand, many liberals are wondering what will happen if Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court — a move that Trump has argued is necessary because the justices’ current vacancy was the result of the 2016 election.

By contrast, the view among the subset of liberals that Ottberg, “a rare figure in the magazine’s history: someone,” described as “pure-blood dolts and intellectual and liberal irony,” as the writer called her readers, is that the other party is “more often than not interested in the opinions of intellectual dolts, like themselves, but mostly interested in very few people.”
