  •  Eh, it's a values thing. (0+ / 0-)

    I can get along with many Republicans on a casual basis, but since I can't help but mistrust their intelligence and/or decency, intimacy's kind of out of the question.  But I think in broader terms than just how an individual happens to treat me, and lots of women only really care about that... IMO, though, public morals count for a lot, and the GOP doesn't have any that I find acceptable.

    Funny thing is, I was basically this way even before the other side went completely batshit crazy... I remember being terrified that someone I really liked was conservative (he wasn't, although a bit too libertarian in that postadolescent white-male way) a year before the Gingrich sweep.  But I'm from the south, so I probably intuited early on that the party was falling into line with cultural ideas that I already couldn't stand.

    Democrats always act as though they're afraid they'll lose, so people look at them and see losers. -Paul Waldman
