Carried away by partisan hatred, and spun like records by the Republican Attack Teams.
And now, I fully expect someone to ignor etheir own situation and cry "What about the DEMOCRATS?!?" as if they set their behavior by what others do.
We're not all bad... :)
Sheer MEANNESS is the ONLY thing I can call it. Back when I did chat on a regular business, you could place a right-winger at a mile's pace. I could make a studied, intelligent point on a matter, and some right-winger would step up and toss HATE and INVECTIVE as though it were an Olympic sport. They'd insult ME, my PARENTAGE, my INTELLIGENCE, and even my WARDROBE (kinda AMAZING, considering that I've NEVER had a webcam to let anyone online SEE me!). it's almost as though it's a reflex action from a pre-schooler.
You'd bring up "create stories" this quickly after the whole 'faked guard papers' incident of CBS fame?
