    I didn't insult everyone. Just those who recommended Booman's idiotic diary.

    The one where he attacks Kucinich without even bother to understand where he is coming from.

      The ones who support Kucinich, but also find him to be a little bit crazy, but who still love him for being that way, and who still don't think his vote was all that great?

      Or is that sort of multiple levels of understanding and feeling not possible?  

      Pessimism is an abject failure and will never live up to its promise. Skepticism as well, I have my doubts about it.

        Amazing how many people can't move beyond Bush's harmful political framework.  "With us or against us" needs to go into the trashbin already.

      it's a matter of tone. For instance, your diary, Do NOT Call Your Congressman or Senator , seemed to be well-received ,with 22 recs in the tip jar.
       A lot of people admire Kucinich on this site, even many who are upset with last night's vote.

      •  Maybe that should tell you something (0+ / 0-)

        It was the Booman diary that was offensive. Not me. I can tolerate an incredibly high degree of disagreement with my views before I turn nasty.

        But this whole site almost has become a nesting ground for people who are hostile to the progressive movement. Thus my mentioning of the enemies list.

        When your enemies are Bill Moyers and Glenn Greenwald, THE PROBLEM IS YOU.

          I don't think either Bill Moyers or Glenn Greenwald is my enemy.

            and no, it's been a little longer - 15 days perhaps. ;)

            Look, I've been a casual lurker here for years. My wife has been a commenter here for years. I've seen the transition as the Obama invasion turned into a hit sqaud aimed at progressive who were immediately mortified by Obama's Republican presidency.

            Republican presidency? Hyperbole? Slightly. But only slightly. I'd rather have a traditional, pre-neocon Republican on economics than the neoliberal snakes Obama has put in power.

            On the empowerment and enabling of the profiteering national "security" state, give me Republican Eisenhower any day over these assholes.

            Moyers and Greenwald may not be your enemy, but I don't believe you can say with any honesty that you haven't noticed the hate and vitriol directed at either them or some of the other progressive leaders who have sinned against Obama by telling the fucking truth.

          a situation where its possible to just disagree with Moyers or Greenwald? Or does disagreement always indicate one thinks they are the enemy?
