      I was hoping you'd have come up with something, anything by now, but being an optimist about others' argument skills is a personal failing of mine, I admit.


      ODS results in Obama's amazing ability to humiliate his biggest critics, on the right and the left.

        …I wasn't in that diary at the time you first made it.

        Here's my retort:

        "Ankle-biting," along with the rest of your comment, is you impugning West's motives for making critical remarks about the President.

        It's the same old "attack the messenger" tactic that's always used when someone says or does something that makes Obama look bad.

        Next you'll claim West is suffering from "ODS." Perhaps you already have, and I just haven't seen it yet.

      It's not like we're comics here for people's entertainment, who need to roll out different stuff every now and then to sell tickets. A good point is a good point no matter when or where it's posted.

      Rev. Barber and Alan Grayson are two examples of individuals who make the same speech over and over, and it never gets tired. And a time-honored quotation may literally be thousands of years old.

      I say we're liberals here, so let's let people say what they want and let the RWNJs be the technicality police.

      It's a police riot. You know what a police riot is? It's when the police riot.
