Fuck this guy. This is a coward calling braver people names because they don't share his sniveling chicken-shit attitude. Almost everything you need to know about what's wrong with the way politics is presented is right here: paid commentators arguing that saying a powerful man is lying to his current and would-be constituents is worse than a powerful man lying to his current and would-be constituents.
The idea that after a year of staggering mendacity, flim-flam, moonshine, snake-oil and unpolished BS peddled by the Romney campaign in the most cynical and brazen fashion, the worst thing that can happen is for someone to point it out is so obnoxious it curls my teeth.
And Scott's quite right, obviously. Once you tell people they're engaging in the tactics that mark out fascist regimes, you can immediately shut the hell up on the topic of how public discourse should be run.
Right. I feel better for that. Everyone have a good weekend.
