Yes, I'm smarter than you

Thoughts on the MFM et al's the idiot peasants are revolting meme - Heavens knows that there are few people who are as intellectually arrogant as I.  But here's the thing - I do not presume that those who hold opinions which differ from mine are per se idiots.  I allow them to open their mouths and remove all doubt, but, my initial assumption is that said person is operating from a different set of assumptions and is placing priority on different values than mine.  If I demand that others accept that I am opining in good faith, and I do, then I owe it to my opposition to do the same.  Such a presumption is a fundamental proposition of clear and logical thinking.  The fact that Obama, the MFM and the rest of that ilk refuse to accept that there are legitimate grounds for opposition says far more about them than it does about me.
