As usual, BD has been weighing in from the right. This is my response in a new thread to some earlier comments.
Sure, I agree that a discussion can be had without resorting to crude responses. But the utter frustration we on the left have is that this administration absolutely will not have those discussions. They ignore any evidence that contradicts their own pre-conceived agenda. They actively surpress data when it shows results that threaten their actions. They fire, demote, reassign or discredit voices within that disagree with them and resort to unseemly and, frankly, disgusting attacks on those outside (witness the whisper campaign that John McCain had an illigetimate black child and was slightly insane because of his confinement).
This administration is a severe threat to democracy and America, and frankly, with all the evidence amassed in front of them, I cannot fathom why a large fraction of American people still support it. Since my sense of what counts as reason, evidence and logic hold little to no weight, I will resort to ranting at the top of my lungs.
(currently in hour 2 of a coughing, non-sleeping baby--its three a.m. You are listening to.... I will rise in an hour and a half to go for a ride. Maybe.)
