    just because there's an ass on this thread doesn't mean s/he was sent by the Obama campaign. the campaign is playing civil. Some of the supporters (on both sides),... eh... not so much.

      And I asked, I didn't declare.

      It's really out of control this week, attacks like od's are growing by the day.

    •  The campaign (0+ / 0-)

      is doing nothing to tamp this down. Nothing.

      •  hmm. i agree with you that some of these comments (0+ / 0-)

        are uncalled for, but i disagree that the campaign is supposed to 'herd' its supporters into behaving in certain ways on the internet. 'obligatorydiscord' is not an operative of the Obama campaign just like 'BoringDem' isnt an operative of the Hillary campaign. There are ugly comments from both sides and you know it. I would never ask, "What is Hillary doing to clamp down on her annoying supporters on the internets?" that would be absurd.

          there aren't more ugly comments from one side than the other?

          Like the MSM both Repubs and Dems are corrupt?

          •  I find it pretty equal, yeah. (1+ / 0-)

            I'm going to name names, but there is a cadre of Hillary supporters that are beyond hostile and unreasonable.  Edwards used to have a couple too, but I haven't seen as much of them since he dropped out.

            There are always some assholes everywhere.  They are responsible for their own behavior.  The Obama campaign can't monitor every comment made on every website FGS!  The campaign itself has set a good tone.  If people like OD aren't able to understand that and modulate their behavior accordingly, I think we have to hold them personally responsible.  OD will probably get trolled out of existence.

          •  woah (0+ / 0-)

            i never said there aren't more Obama supporters on here than Hillary supporters. and with that, the asshats on the Obama side are going to be more in number than the asshats on the Hillary side (assuming proportions are equal). i never said ANYTHING about equal distribution.

            i just said don't blame the CAMPAIGN for stupid comments made by an ass on this thread. THAT is unfair. you were blaming 'obligatorydiscords' comments on the campaign and suggesting the campaign should do something to shut people like that up.

            hope that clears things up.

            •  I didn't blame I asked (0+ / 0-)

              if the campaign sent OB. And OB stopped commenting after that.

              •  ok lets clear this up right now (0+ / 0-)

                you asked at 9:12 EST

                As much fun as this is.

                I know, it's probably not what you want to hear. oD

                please don't make leading insinuations about what the Obama campaign may or may not being doing on this site. obligatorydiscord didn't stop spewing shit when you made the insinuation that he is part of Obama's campaign. s/he shutup 45 minutes before that. now can we stop this?

      •  Why should they be? (0+ / 0-)

        As much as I enjoy Kos it is just a blog.  They have better things to do.  A little perspective might be in order here.
