    The advice to "grow up" is for the people who are acting childish. There's ample reason to be upset over FISA, but not to hyperbolate and go on and on about how he's sold out and not to support him.

    Lots of people do, in fact, need to grow up.

      It is the OVERreaction and the hyperbolic vituperation that is the problem not taking the position.

          I found it last week reading a book by William Manchester - "A World Lit Only By Fire" - a great history of the Renaissance. I love it and thrilled to be able to use it correctly in a sentence! :p
