    ...that critiquing Obama means President McCain.

    Mocking people by calling their critiques phony outrage (implied by quoting it in your comment) and purity is counter-productive to your goals.

    I'm more directly affected by the Constitution than alot of people here that are "outraged" about the new purity test called FISA.....

    For a good example of your argument without the condescension and shaming, please read the recent diaries by Elise and Blueness, who made points I don't necessarily agree with but did so calmly and with compelling points.

    I rec'd both those diaries even though I disagreed with some of the content, because they took on the issue squarely and fairly.

    •  No you went after me because according to you the (0+ / 0-)

      diary didn't mention Obama but I was defending him.  

      I also noticed you didn't go after anyone other than those defending Obama.

      And my "strawman" arguments, was to highlight how a McCain administration would treat the Constitution versus an Obama administration.  

      But hey, let me go put my head back in the sand and let you have your fun at "critiquing" our nominee who has to fight a three front campaign from his left (so-called base), from the right (his supposedly real opponents) and from the ignorant racists (that still believes he's Muslim/Foreign/Terrorists/Non-Patriotic)....  

      I'll have fun with my sand castles and stuff....

      Yeah, I'm an asshole, but assholes are needed. We get rid of shit that's not needed and we are able to provide pain & pleasure..
