    “Bot” is a lot more accurate. You don’t have to be a fan to be a bot.
    Those who oppose the administration are linguistically straitjacketed around here.

    •  how about just arguing policy (4+ / 0-)

      and don't tell people who they are.   just make your points.  if people don't accept what you say, so what?  what does it matter if people on daily kos don't oppose Obama?  if you want to convince people to oppose Obama there's 300 million other people out there who are a lot easier to convince than the people around here.  if you aren't trying to convince people to oppose Obama, but just want to say that you do, then who cares what people say around here.  

      I'm reading this book called The Swedish Social Democrats. Written by Herbert Tingsten in 1941 and finally published in English in 1973, a year before I was born. I love finding these jewels in my local used bookstore.

      •  Perhaps the purchase of a thesaurus? (0+ / 0-)

        I liked cultist, which seemed to escape the Meteor Blades stamp of disapproval, because it referred specifically to those who wanted to form a cult of personality around Obama.

        Apparatchik? Loon?  Fellow-Traveller?  Priest?  Soldier?  Supporter?  Cheerleader?  Partisan?  

        Conversely, for those on the other side:

        Menshevik?  Critic?  Fifth Column?  Nudnik?  Hater?  Peanut Gallery?  Dirty Fucky Hippie?  Purity Troll?

        Personally, I liked being called a purity troll.  I haven't previously been called pure.

        •  All insults are HRable. (0+ / 0-)

          The specific words don't matter so much.
