      And stop lying about what tk is saying, and engaging in Rovian attacks on his and other Obama critics' motives, character and mental state.

        If duhban were "lying about what tk is saying", why did not tk make the accusation?

        Not to mention that none of what duhban's said here is an ad hominem attack. Nor has duhban attackingly described the motives, character, &/or mental state of Obama critics here.

        Extraordinary claims such as yours require evidence that is quite lacking here. Further, your tone throughout this diary seems to be beggaring fights; this may be an opportune moment to step away from the keyboard and come back refreshed later.

        A winning campaign? You didn't build that...

        •  Attacking someone as a purist is ad hom (0+ / 0-)

          and thus Rovian. IMO all attacks on a person's personality, motives, mindset, rationality, philosophy, etc., should be HRable. Stick to substance or STFU.

          •  Look in the mirror. You inserted (0+ / 0-)

            yourself into a debate and then accused one party of lying.
            By your own standards - articulated above - attacking someone as being "Rovian" simply because you disagree with them,  should be hrable.

            •  Nonsense, sheer nonsense (0+ / 0-)

              Calling out trollish behavior is NOT trollish behavior, and claiming that it is IS Rovian. You're the one who needs a good mirror. He and others lied about tk, accusing him of being a purist who'll never be happy with Obama no matter what. That's trollish, that's dickish, and I'm calling it out as such.

              You don't get to be a dick just because you don't like someone's opinion.
