    not touting this conjecture. The Republican mouths' (Limbaugh, Beck, and Hannity) always use stupid, unprovable comparisons like this to make their points, because facts do not ever enter in to their bag of tricks. To state that conservatives are taking a bitter attitude over the Nobel award and the Taliban is bitter also, is a more factual statement. Conservatives are not standing with the Taliban on anything no more than Liberals stand with the Taliban in wanting to kill our president when Bush was in office. None of us liked Bush, but killing him was not in the majority. I hate to see our side sink to the depths of the Becks Limbaughs and Hannitys. We surely don't need to.

      It's disheartening to see so many people here embracing Republican tactics of illogic and lying.  We are supposed to be different.  We are supposed to be better.  The RNC isn't siding with the Taliban anymore than Obama sides with Hamas when he opposes settlement expansion.

    •  Agreed, this line of thinking makes me sick (1+ / 0-)

      everybody is loving their Bush rhetoric today.  I'm sad to see party leadership and the Kos staff embracing this.
