    If Republicans said every 3rd person named "Smith" should hang, we'd bargain them to every 7th. Then we'll see apologia written praising this most pragmatic compromise. There's our losing formula.

      The argument was eerily reminiscent of Republican efforts to deny reality when the lies that got us into Iraq were exposed.  Robotic repetition of an obviously false argument, using word salad explication and foot-stomping impatience with anybody who didn't drink the Kool-Aid.  Anybody who attempted it should be shamed out of this community, but sadly that won't happen.  

      It's one of those things that reminds me to be a little humble about despising Republicans.  We're not as different from them as we'd like to think.
