I gotta say . . . this was a fantastic piece. This person had his perceptions of his political opponents tempered by gulp spending time with them and actually listening to them. And though he obviously baited them at times, I can't help but feel like he came away with a different impression of his "enemies." I thought his thoughts on the Dems "hijacking" cool and claiming it as theirs were balls-on accurate. There, he skewered those pretenders as bad as he skewered us in other places.

I remain a fly on the wall among my liberal friends. I never once chime in support or opposition to their bullsh!t. I will change the subject or walk away from the discussion at times.
I have heard incredibly ugly and violent things from their mouths and have never offered the slightest encouragement for them to continue along those lines. They are loudmouths and they know it.
