      You do realize, don't you, that some people - like me - don't want to waste time focusing on the wingnuts because time is precious and we already now what bloody loons they are, so we stay out of those diaries? Right? Do you keep some sort of attendance sheet? And since when is focusing attention on Obama trolling?


      Is somebody now putting together some "Enemies List Manual" for this site?

        It's old, old, old news.

        We're not allowed to talk about certain particular incidents or individuals, but there's been round after round of "KosKops" in one form or another forming posse's and making watchlists.

        I never said or implied that focusing on Obama was trolling. I said that there are some people who routinely jump on the anti-Obama threads, and are never found the Republican threads or find ways to change the topic back to Obama. The same people frequently engage in personal attacks on the president by using GOP talking talking points like "his vacation" and so forth.

        By the way Republicans in congress aren't just "wingnuts." to be ignored. They are paid, working members of our government. They are the only alternative to Democrats. They are legislators whose decisions affect every day lives. Consequently focusing on them is not "wasting time."
