    •  But that shows focus on policy (0+ / 0-)

      Not personality.

      I find it odd that you would prefer someone not be criticized because of who they are not matter what they say.

      I think you ans wisper are rather revealing in these comments.

      •  no it shows focus on purity (2+ / 0-)

        because they were picking on poor bernie for inserting community health centers into the legislation lmao

        your responses to me and wisper belie your own bias.  there's no objective read of what I'm saying that says "personality over policy."

        •  There is nothing but personality over policy (0+ / 0-)

          in your comment.

          Sanders and Maddow are immune from criticism is what you are saying.

          That is all personality.

          It is as plain as the nose on your face.

          •  we're at "no I'm not" "yes you are" so I'll bow (0+ / 0-)

            out.

            You do not need me to explain this to you Armando. I've read your postings for years.

            The point is not that some people are immune.  Why are you projecting this?

            It is the absurdity of purity testing highlighting the inability to hold the opinions "Bernie Sanders is a phenomenal Senator that has long been a champion for many progressive causes" along with "Bernie Sanders supported ACA which I hate"  and therefore simply default to "Bernie Sanders is a traitor and sold out his beliefs to Obama and Corporate Healthcare."  A vicious ad hominem attack that ignores the very possibility, much less the mere existence, of a middle ground or any issue-granularity.

            I mean, I was in a debate a few weeks ago where someone told me Barney Frank did more harm then good to the Gay Rights movement because he personally pushed for and voted for DOMA and wouldn't cosign a repeal bill in 2009.

            •  I know you are now trying to provoke me (0+ / 0-)

              What the hell is the point of saying watch people criticize Maddow when she sez something they disagree with.

              Of course they will and should.

              Are you really trying to piss me off?

                and reciprocally I would add.

                It is not that she shouldn't be criticized.  It is that she will not just be criticized for an opinion but rather will be summarily and instantaneously judged to be a myopic bubble-bound VSP that is just promoting Obama to maintain her media elite access or some such bullshit.

                It is the apparent inability to criticize a single opinion, stance, statement or action without impugning the character of the person entirely.  

                A response that could only be (charitably) described as "juvenile".

                And when I decide to "try to piss you off"; you'll know it.
