Stop the Name-Calling, Thank Those Who Are Trying

The view from Squag City.

I'd like to say thank you to U.S. Rep. Ann McLane Kuster for her continuing effort to advance public debate on the sequester issue, and for her determined summons to adult, thoughtful action on deficit reduction.

It can't be easy to be responsible in this environment.

And I notice she's getting no credit for her efforts from those who have yelled loudest for spending reduction.

At the moment I write this, she has been called an unpleasant name in the comment section to the news story on this issue, and Democrats who admire her effort, have been likened to something larger than mice (i.e. democRATS?).

Can we calm it down folks, please? Some of us, particularly Kuster, are trying to find solutions.

He was probably in the same place you were when the tea party protesters were shouting racial epithets at Congress representatives in Washington DC.

Ya right. Did anybody ever collect Breitbart's $100K reward for video or audio evidence of what you are asserting as true? And do you know its true or just repeating a screwball talking point? BTW calling the Tea Party racists happened long before then. On April 15, 2009, that pizza-faced witch Jeanine Garafalo call us Tea Partiers racists all while Keith Olbermann was saying "yep", "uh-huh" and "that's right". Since then there's a long list of Tea Party name-callers from Cokie Roberts to Marc Lamont-Hill. All liars. Your statement is based on a lie. You are RUDE.

Jack: > On April 15, 2009, that pizza-faced witch Jeanine Garafalo... Ahh, so you're misogynist but not racist. I see.

Atlant: If you are ugly enough to label people you dont know showing up a Tea Perty rallies to protest the ever increacing government size and reach as racists, you are ugly enough to be called a PIZZA-FACED WITCH. As Annie would say "eff her...". One name call deserves another. And if I dont provide her the respect you judge is appropriate you label me a misogynist? I dont think anyone running around calling people racists for no reason deserve any respect. .

I guess all of the congressmen who had epithets thrown at them were lying, Jack? Just because you can't see the white hoods within your little group doesn't mean they aren't there. By the way, they lost in November in no small part due to their racism.
