A face devoid of love or grace,
A hateful, hard, successful face,
A face with which a stone
Would feel as thoroughly at ease
As were they old acquaintances,—
First time together thrown.
~ Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

Actor Rob Lowe explained on Twitter why the revival of "Roseanne" worked.
"The secret to @therealroseanne massive ratings is that it celebrates people with huge political differences who are able to laugh and love together as they passionately disagree," Lowe tweeted.
The reaction from the left was stuffier than the attic in August.
"What our country is experiencing is an attack on our very democracy, not a difference of opinions. Trump is a genuine threat to the USA and the world. Normalizing him is dangerous. Not a laughing matter."
"I'm not able to laugh and love with anyone trying to destroy America, thanks."
"As a straight CIS rich person it’s easy for you to say this. You’ve never been the LGBT member of your family who has Trump supporters who say they love you but don’t because they support bigotry. Difference of opinion can happen but Roseanne isn’t the voice of reason."
And so forth, and so on. Twitchy did a thing on it.
Once again we see liberalism as a religion. The liberals' high opinion of themselves is amusing. I forget who said it first, but when you lose a sense your other senses become more intense; thus when you lose your sense of humor, your sense of self-importance grows.

Their elevated sense of morality shows that they have been indoctrinated, just as North Koreans have. The difference is the Norks don't eat as much but on the other hand, the Norks have not paid $100,000 in student loans for their indoctrination.
As for the "Roseanne" show, executive producer Bruce Helford told Politico, "We write it from the point of view that working-class people are the nobility of this country, and not that they’re rednecks or hillbillies."
