  •  Yeah - but let's also take two additional things (4+ / 0-)

    out of this...

    First - the fact that under Todd's theory, you have a large chunk of people who think being 'Muslim' is something that makes for a good needle.  That says something about that crowd immediately in my mind -- that they're crass, craven, jackasses who ought to be rightly excluded from mainstream discourse.  They ought to be derided, not have their asses kissed as some good, salt of the earth folks.  Fer fuck's sake -- if Chris Christie can say, so can I -- I'm tired of dealing with the whackos.

    Second - that a subset of people think everything even something as silly as answering a few poll questions, calls for needling to begin with.

    Doesn't matter what the analysis shows -- in the end, it all adds to one simple truth:

    There are a significant number of people in this country who should have zero role to play in our national discourse.

    That doesn't mean I think they ought to be kept from voting, that doesn't mean I think they ought to have their rights to free expression infringed upon, and that doesn't mean I favor expelling them or sending them to some sort of reeducation camp...  But it damn well does mean that no rational journalist, no pundit with even the barest of integrity -- ought to give them the time of day.  

    If they want to behave as crude neanderthals -- then they can be behave that way... the rest of us - and yes, that even includes or at least SHOULD include some conservatives/Republicans - ought to be allowed to rationally discuss issues and politics without worrying about the drooling shit-stain getting pissy because we're not talking about whatever nonsense conspiracy theory his or her carnival barkers gave him or her to masturbate with that week.

    Full Disclosure: I am an unpaid shill for every paranoid delusion that lurks under your bed - but more than willing to cash any checks sent my way

    •  Well said. (0+ / 0-)

      The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy... the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.
