    Otherwise, their lies and smears become 'truths' (see, Swiftboat, etc).

    I've found that mocking them, backed up by facts works the best. No one likes to be laughed at. And that's especially true with the authoritarian type lunatics who make up todays Republican party.

      I try do it in small part in most of the diaries I write.

      Not that these idiots will ever see them. Though I'm contemplating the possibility of doing @mentions in tweets announcing my diaries about particular conservatives. I'm still new to Twitter, so I haven't mastered it enough to use it to advantage.  ;)

      Face to face is another matter. Whether by luck or subconscious choice, I don't come across them too often.

      Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.
