  •  It's always the same thing with these people (6+ / 0-)

    Reinhart and Rogoff published a piece in the NYT about how their feelings were hurt and how they were just well-meaning scholars.

    And I recall Anne Romney's feelings were hurt. And Sam Alito's wife's feelings. And the feelings of the Republicans attending Paul Wellstone's funeral...

    The RW is always the same.  They call you a traitor who conspires with terrorists--or a lazy nigger who freeloads off the system,  depending on whether you are a white liberal/progressive or a black person who is not Republican. Or, in this case, a stupid spic, because you are a Latino/a who wants to enter this country and is not a right-winger from Cuba.

    Then when you point out what they've done wrong, they whine that you've hurt their feelings and aren't you a mean person for hurting their feelings.

    "When people spin this in partisan terms to obfuscate the truth, it does a real disservice to normal people not in the big club in DC. Many of them will be hurting...That is why I write."--priceman
