What. The. F$#%#$#@$#%^$uck.
So, on one side, we have the party of the closet racists and lynch-mobs-in-waiting. And on the other we have the party of otherwise sane people who decide to go around beating people with conservative politics in order to...I dunno, prove that Democrats are devoted to politics as well as routine criminal activity.
I have never been more ashamed of this country's politics, or of the liberal base of this country, than now that it has been revealed how completely nuts some of them are. As much as there has been outrage and suspicion involved in the typically underhanded tactics used by the GOP and the anger at some of their rallies, the Democratic base have been the actual ones to go out and commit violent crime in the name of partisanship.
Please, fellow blue-bloods, if you are reading this, pay close attention: VIOLENCE ISN'T NICE! Bad Democrat. Bad. Put the damn weapons down, and think for a f#@$%ing second.
Sigh...I guess this is what happens when your party base has a sizable chunk of dumbass kids contributing to it, who are apparently not rational enough to know when it is and is not socially acceptable to carve a "B" into the face of a person you disagree with.
In fairness, these cases, despite being more frequent than I would like, are incredibly divergent from the mainstream constituency, and the man who cut a "B" into a McCain volunteer's face had already robbed her before being aware of her politics (...which...makes it better...I guess [?]). Arrgghhh...damn exasperating, though.
Edit Edit: Why am I not surprised? Well, it was nice when my righteous fury was directed in a more diffuse manner for a few hours. But, after verifying, once again, that they are bald-faced liars, my indignation is now back in its proper, right-facing position. Chalk another one up on the big list of neocon distortions and lies for me.
