  •  I agree you have a right, I never questioned (0+ / 0-)

    that, which is why I didn't mention it specifically. Of course, everyone does.

    What I do question is how effective it is to make the same point over and over again, ad nauseum, or to show up in every diary of a person you know you are going to dislike. I'm not going "ballistic", by the way - that is a gross exaggeration, but I just find reading the same arguments repeatedly counter-productive. I'm interested in a variety of viewpoints, not the same ones over and over. Personally, I  think that working to elect better Democrats, or doing just about anything is a better use of time than railing against Rall.

    He is not answering, I suppose, because he's not around? Speaking of which, I have better things to do right now, too. Cheerio.

    PS: I recc'd you even though we do not agree. I believe in civil discourse and that it's possible - even here. You were the one starting to lose your temper...I was not.

    •  The only thing I find irritating (0+ / 0-)

      is your presumption to tell me what my emotional state is. You've no cause to think you know me that well.

      If our time is to be spent electing better Democrats, part of that task is pushing back against people pushing false anti-Democratic memes, wouldn't you say?

      Oh wait, you wouldn't, apparently.

        You're the one going ballistic over that, not me..."

        Really? Good way to make yourself look a little silly. On top of taking cartoons very, very seriously... threatening our proud, leftist Democratic values, no doubt...

        •  I spoke of your actions. (0+ / 0-)

          You spoke of my emotions.

          There's a big difference.

          But nuance doesn't seem to be your strong suit.

          Nor does detail, like Rall doubling and trebling down explicitly on what he was trying to communicate, despite your risible efforts to say there's nothing to see here, move along.

          Your throne-sniffing of a mediocre cartoonist is admirable, but I've nothing more to say to you.
          End of line.
