Bobby Jindal, the Republican governor of Louisiana, is “chronically stupid.” And Eric Cantor of Virginia, the second-ranking Republican in the House, is “busy lying constantly.” ...Writers who are not pro-Barack Obama are suffering character assassination... What is surprising is that the attacks are continuing after an election... The closer the Democrats get to total power, the nastier the commentators friendly to them have become.

Bloomberg.com: News

A couple posters here come to mind. Just thinking of you.

The article is so true.

Yes I'd take up another hobby if you don't like blunt talk.

Liberals are not putting up with right wing crackpots any longer.

I'm all for derision and ridicule if it's earned....and wingnuts earn alot of it.

What you yearn for is the days before Howard Dean where Liberals would make apologies for you hating them, and try their darndest to be accomodating while the right wing just screwed them over up and down...LOL

Yep...those days are over.

Default A small exert by James Lewis

Talking to liberals is very much like doing therapy. The first lesson any psychiatrist learns is that most clients don't listen. They only pretend to listen, and then they never follow any sensible advice. So talking doesn't do the trick. It never does. If talking helped, they wouldn't be there in the first place.

So what do you do?

You wait for life to happen.

And then slowly, a tiny little bit at a time, you gently point out the ways in which clients defeat themselves, over and over again.

Therapists don't change people. Life does -- sometimes, if we are lucky and very patient.

A good therapist can turn life into learning opportunities. But you have to be very, very patient and forbearing. And the client has to be pretty desperate to learn.

Talking to liberals is like that.

The pendulum swings both ways. Just like with overexcited real estate flippers, the pendulum can come back so hard and so quickly to pound them in the a**.
