Conservatives face an inherent limitation: their stories all end up with teh same point. There are no surprises, no challenges. That's also why they have no comedians. The apllette of issues and attitudes acceptable to conservatives is too narrow.

HABEEB: The fact is, it’s easier to sell a political narrative to America when it comports with the cultural narrative we see and hear every day.

“The universe is made up of stories, not atoms,” the poet Mariel Rukeyser once said. Stories, not facts, are the way people process information. Screenplays, plays, scripts, and stories are packed not with hard data but something more powerful and human: emotional data. That’s why we remember stories long after we’ve forgotten facts. Stories stir our souls.
