Q, w/ A -- Mass. Conservatives

"Willard" asks:

Why are right wing bloggers and commenters of the MA political blogosphere generally so inarticulate, unoriginal, sloppy, dull, obtuse,  dense, and devoid of critical thought?

I have ruminated on this very topic in the past, and I actually have a theory about it which I will now present in vastly oversimplified sweeping generalizations:

The breed of intelligent, relatively moderate "Massachusetts Republicans" are now all over the age of 50 and do not participate in the online world. Their literal and intellectual offspring have been driven leftward (or into hiding) by the new breed of ultraconservatives. These ultraconservatives, having no local intellectual heritage to draw from, have learned their ideology from the vacuous, "dittohead" simplifications of talk radio.
