On Liberals and Leftists
I make a distinction. Folks like Senators Wyden, Durbin, Chucky Schumer even - while I don't necessarily always agree with them, a) they're sane and b) I feel that I could eventually sit down and hammer out some sort of an agreement with them (Senator Schumer's tax compromise in 2012, for example). Contrast that with the endless parade of freaks/guttersnipes which show their vitriol on a nightly basis over at MSNBC (add also a handful of Congresspersons like Alan Grayson) and it is an entirely different story in my book. I mean, I don't know about you folks but I wouldn't even want to be in the same damn room with people like Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddow, and Chris Hayes, never mind having to sit down and cut a deal with them.
