    Although I'm torn between debunking every BS accusation they make, sitting there listening to the Republicans' phony performance art and fundraising speeches to their idiot base, is just too much to ask of any Democrat.

    I would ignore it, like you ignore a 2 year old having a tantrum.

      debunking every BS accusation they make
      They always benefit politically when they goad us into endless games of Whackamole.  

      When truth is only a matter of opinion, advantage goes to the liars.

    •  Think of the witnesses... (0+ / 0-)

      I'm reminded of Arlen Specter's "tough" questioning of Anita Hill.  Ms. Hill tried to describe how she felt sexually harassed, but didn't think that it met the legal requirements for sexual harassment.  The good Senator would then try to claim that she didn't feel sexually harassed at the time.  At which point Ms. Hill (again) tried to distinguish between how she felt and what the law (at the time) required. And on and on it went.

      If there are no Dems, then idiotic questioning like this gets a pass.  Dems should participate only to challenge conclusions imbedded in the GOPers' loaded questions.

      Don't be a DON'T-DO... Be a DO-DO!
