  •  Dumbest analogy of all time (1+ / 0-)

    I get this from my best friend who is a huge fan of Palin, which off the bat gives me an idea of how dumb an analogy it really is.

    Centrism is not about driving down the middle of the road, it is about understanding that someone's ideal position is a pipe dream at best when dealing with a country of 300,000,000.  

    It is easy to make stupid fucking jokes about standing in the doorway, when an even dumber scenario are two people on opposite sides of the door with one trying to get in and one trying to get out, but both of them are pushing.  

    Centrists don't tell people from the extremes of either party to shut the fuck up for no reason, trust me.  Centrists know that even the far left and right have ideas.  The problem arises when all they do is have ideas.  For an entire year D's and R's have been spouting their ideas and talking non stop shit, bullshit if I may.  

    The reason centrists want them to shut the fuck up is because there is work to do.  While people are crying and indeed whining about the merits of this and the selling out of that, centrists are actually getting things done.  So it is not STFU because we don't want to hear your ideas, it is because we have the ideas and you should STFU so we can concentrate on putting them in place.

      I LOVE this part of what you said the most:

      So it is not STFU because we don't want to hear your ideas, it is because we have the ideas and you should STFU so we can concentrate on putting them in place.

      Baby Doll, you're going to have to hone your powers of concentration amidst a cacophony of comments and suggestions a bit more, because those of us in your self designated peanut gallery are not likely to shut up any time soon.

      Thank you so much for stopping by.  Really.  Thank you!  :)

      Just terrific commentary on your part as added to this debate.

      You're like Prince Charming for proving a point.  Not that proving a point was that important.  It was just my opinion, but hell isn't this what's great about blogs?  There's always someone to prove your point isn't there?

      Clever folks tend to stay out of those traps. Just sayin'.

      •  Duh (0+ / 0-)

        of course you won't shut up.  The people actually working realize that, it is merely a request to help us concentrate more.
