    don't you know, if you don't blindly support those with the magical "D" by their name, you may be troll, a secret right wing mole.

       Party politics is what is killing us. We look at what "our side, our party" does not through a right or wrong prism, but through is this good for the party, will this help us at the polls. "Our guy" did something underhanded, immoral, criminal, corrupt, lets start deflecting, "Bush did it first", "our guy is different, you can trust him with this", "I don't care what he leaked, he did it to make "our guy" look bad", "don't worry, he is just doing this, so he can get somebody to take it to court, and get a ruling against it"

    I have heard all of this from self-described liberals/progressives.

    "To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." T. Roosevelt
