    Rhetorical question not a formal site request.

    It's obvious these commentators are not journalists of any kind but propagandists.

    So who's their intended audience? Enabler-class citizens, other media and middling government officials who still think we have a functional country here?

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"

      but please take into consideration... I'm the only progressive in my family, and when we get together for holidays, etc, I might as well be wearing a target on my chest.  For me, these types of posts not only let me blow off a lot of steam (because, as you so aptly put it,

      It's obvious these commentators are not journalists of any kind but propagandists.

      which makes them such easy targets for the snark), they help me prepare for combat at my family get-togethers.  Not kidding.  They (yes...'they') actually believe this bullshit, god help us and the rest of the free world.
      Their political life is not one of discussion, debate or lucid thought.  It's just all snappy one-liners aimed at depreciating a member of their family.  These folks actually are proud to have purchased and own a G.I. Joe type George W. Bush doll dressed up in a flightsuit, like the jerk was for the "Mission Accomplished" photo-op.  If I didn't get so much pleasure wielding the double-edged sword of truth and freedom down upon their loser asses, I'd probably write them off altogether and just see my Parents on the off-holidays.
      So I understand and respect where you're coming from, because honestly, we don't really need these types of diaries.  But for me, personally, they do serve a purpose.
