Bell Curve The Law Talking Guy Raised by Republicans U.S. West
Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Glenn Greenwald is so good today that I just have to link to him. Please read his two posts -- ths first about "incivility" at graduation speeches and the second, much scarier, about imprisoning journalists. Wow.

It is scary and what more can you say but what Greenwald has said.

Before long, we will be wearing a scarlet "L" (for liberal) on our lapels and be transported to a reservation in Vermont.

I know someone who is Republican and who sees disagreeing with her political views as a sign of personal disrespect. If you disagree with her, you are supposed to just be quiet about it. Granted, she won't talk about politics with you. But still . . .

I must have disagreed or something because now she isn't speaking to me. What can you d?. If you are going to be like that, then it will be a very lonely world for you. Apparently this tendency is widespread on the Right. But it points to the "culture" (even among moderates) of victimization and persecution that borders on psychosis.

At least those of us on the left have the capacity to disagree with each other, even if it costs us elections.
