Comments: THEY HATE US

It's almost funny, isn't it?

But honestly, it's on both sides. You got folks on the right openly calling people who are pro-choice baby killers and "godless." Those who don't have an issue with legal civil unions are against the sanctity of marriage. And don't forget that those who are unsure whether the mission in Iraq is worth it are unpatriotic or against the Troops!

Going to extremes is just one way of appealing to the lowest common denominator, a way of trying to polarize issues even more than they already are. And the tactic is as old as time.

But still, it's really sad, isn't it? You'd hope that we could, as Republicans, Democrats, Conservatives, Liberals, whatever, talk about things on a higher level.

At first I thought the Mehlman article was written in an ironic tone. Unbelievable...

Tell you what Sarah, it isn't that I think I am smarter than you, just more experienced, you did not live through Watergate, so you are really sort of blind to the criminal cabal our government has become. Someday you might see it the way those of us older than you do, or maybe not, either way you need to lose the innocence and develope some cynicism, towards ALL GOVERNMENT, not just the parts you disagree with.
