    And for doing in a kind way. But since the onset of shows like the McLaughlin Group the tenor of political discussion has sharply dropped. Remember the old SNL bit from the late 70s "Jane you ignorant slut". It was considered shocking then is pretty tame stuff compared to today. I no longer discuss politics with Republicans because shouting back makes my throat sore. Sure back in the 19th century bare knuckle politics happened, but candidates stayed above the seamier stuff.
