"conservatives"? You mean Democrats. Unless you meant "Republicans," in which case the words you are looking for are "reactionary", "recidivist", "unreconstructed", and "racist"

One of Obama's special skills seems to be knowing how to push all of the right buttons to make conservatives go into an incoherent rage and make themselves look bad.

How much skill is required to be black on a daily basis?

The guy's logic would be sound with any other party comprise of rational, thinking beings. However, we're dealing with Republicans, here, and he clearly hasn't checked the temperature in Hell.

Dickerson's a very cogent writer and is a smart analyst, I listen to him on Slate's Political Gabfest podcast and read many of his articles. He often writes by trying to think from the point of view of the person he's covering, or at least presents part of his personal analysis from that framework.

The problem is, people with low reading skills also read his work, and think that one individual component of what he writes is the totality of what he thinks.

Dickerson also rubs shoulders with a lot of influential and well educated Republicans (the Rockefeller variety, as well as the party activists). I think he's a lot more willing to take them seriously and intellectually engage with them and their ideas, whereas he gets frustrated with the incredible cognitive dissonance that the common GOP identifying voter displays frequently on some topics. He does this a little less with Democrats, in part due to his own bias, he tends to identify as liberal and thus is incredibly skeptical of a lot of his own conclusions because of that bias. But at least he works to contain and marginalize his bias.

You can fix your work to keep it appearing foolish from smart readers. But there's nothing you can do to fix dumb readers. And when it comes to the politically active, there are a whole lot of dumb readers in the GOP camp.
