I think we really need to discuss this without flaming each other. I agree with the article. But to publicly start calling a man crazy, and that is what he does, is low and doesn't bring the issue up to the level of discourse. It is better to be smart than right in this instance in my opinion. I absolutely think Miss Marple has the key. We need to get a President reelected and we need to be smart about it. Polarizing talk, about Jews, Unitarians, gays, etc is not going to get the large middle moderate section of voters on our side. Heck, it won't get alot of freepers on our side. The author's bring up of cheneys lesbian daughter was over the top in my mind.

Flame? You must be confusing me with someone else. I am the epitome of decorum.
I was teasing Marple, who is familiar with my stance on the shortcomings of internet discourse.
What you say is exactly my point. We don't need to be circumspect, but Prudence is the chief conservative virtue according to Edmund Burke.
Some of our exchanges on a conservative site are reasonably passionate -- that's okay if within lawful bounds.

That line was where I wondered if the whole article was some kind of 'reverse-psychology' operation. You know, when somebody brings something up that most people have completely forgotten about (like me for example)? And then blows it up into a reason that a man like Cheney gets dumped for Chuckie after a weird chain of events....? Well anyways, I'm not sure that I trust the author.
You are wrong again, nothing is over the top with Liberals! Besides, Dean is Crazy! Stating the truth is okay.
