    for people being rude to the one person who seems to be respected on "both sides" of the DK site?

    Look, you and your buddies want to hurl insults at virtually everyone in your own diaries, that's your business.

    This was a respected INDEPENDENT political figure who has often taken the time to explain his positions here and to advocate for many of the positions that you so fervently believe in.

    There was no need for people to start foaming at the mouth.

    He was being courteous to us. I know that is a foreign concept to many on this site, but really, is it that difficult?

    It's about courtesy.

    And, by the way, you might actually be surprised at the amount of abuse that the American people will tolerate.

    Sad, but true.

    Not everybody believes in the New World Order, the mythical construct that seems to fascinate so many of you and your friends (what's that you say? you don't believe in "The NWO", only the "concept"? What's the difference? It's all make-believe paranoid fantasies).

    Now see what you have done? I was trying to be polite and here I am participating in your hijack of this diary.... tut, tut, tut. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

    There are only two types of Republicans: 1) racists; and 2) people who are willing to be associated with racists.

        (my emphasis this time)

        But good try....

        He didn't have to resort to non-courteous language to make his point. Why should it be introduced in the comments?

        It is akin to insulting, though, you're right.
