    Not an abbreviation I'm familiar with.

    But the problem, even with what you're suggesting, is in that it actually does make Paul sound more 'reasonable', more like a 'cross the aisles' sort of politician when people on the left praise him for being 'on our side' even on some issues, rather than simply pointing out the holes in what he actually wants.

    •  fcol= for crying out loud. :D .... (5+ / 0-)

      and i think that most people paying attention right now are mostly die hard political junkies.

      and one could argue by your standard there that a lot of Obama's words make him sound like a leftie, or at least they used to when he was running for office.

      what you seem to be arguing is that when someone says something correct, if they are not a Democrat, we are not allowed to say 'ok i agree with that point' cuz if we do, we may in some way bring the whole house down. and get tarred feathered and branded here at Orange State. it seems to be a slippery slope argument.

      i really do doubt that there are many people at all who read here who would seriously vote for Rand Paul for anything. but to read diaries like this (and this has been going on for years what with the Ron Paul fears before) one would think it is a serious possibility. and that's just a creation of a boogeyman in order to further the keeping the disaffected lefties in line imo.
