      Interesting that she did a Rove.  Attack the person where they are the strongest.  Most people understand that Barack Obama is a decent human being.

      However, I need to say that this is the sentiment expressed on this very site day in and day out.  Why we can see it when Jennifer Rubin expresses it but can't when some of our own do the same thing is TELLING!  

      On Rachel Maddow's show for the first time she brought up the John Birch Society and antisemitism with E J Dionne.  They talked about how William Buckley worked to expunge that bigotry from being associated with conservativism and Dionne and Maddow expressed the wish that current conservatives would do the same thing with the current crop.  Instead it seems they have taken over the movement.  Maybe during Joseph McCarthy's era of terrorizing people it felt the same way.  I agree with Maddow and Dionne and think this is the discussion we need to be having.  Call a spade a spade and refuse to let that kind of witch hunt thinking take over the liberal movement.

      Jenifer Rubin, Rush Limbaugh, Steve King, etc. etc. are all John Birchers to me.  What didn't make the connection until recently was the libertarian connection.  Somehow I had never seen that they were one and the same thing.

      When we have rabid anti Obama sentiment on this site I see it as absolutely the same thing.  Its masked under a left wing version of libertarianism and it is just as vicious.  Many people have stopped posting here, perhaps reading here and so the percentage of this type of article is increasing.  Its becoming as predictable and propaganda like as Rush's show or Glenn Beck's and just as devoid of any balance.

      First we should notice the plank in our own eye.
