  •  I believe you speak to the subspecies (0+ / 0-)

    in a language they understand.

    Science and "nice" aren't languages they understand.

    These are carjackers: don't be offering to wash the car and fill it up before they knock you in the head and steal your shit.

    It is your well-expressed sentiments that really concern me.

    Playing nice with this trash isn't a good idea.

      No one reacts well to being condescended to. The Romneys'  primary problem as far as I saw was that neither he nor she could help but condescend the to "peasantry".  He and his campaign did a lot of stupid things, but I think it was that condescension, that undisguised snobbery that made the rest of it unforgivable.

      •  Of course it's condescending. (0+ / 0-)

        they understand that.

        again, if polite and intelligent discourse were possible we'd not have to talk about this.

        We'd have a totally different country.

        We don't generally talk like that here because most people here can understand reasoned debate.

        The Right has poisoned the well for 40 years and what we see now is it's fruition.

        •  Ah, well . . . (0+ / 0-)

          It's my view that we must not let ourselves be poisoned, too.
