Aaron Sorkin for President

From our good friends at Eschaton:
"We all need some therapy, because somebody came along and said "liberal" means soft on crime, soft on drugs, soft on Communism, soft on defense, and we're gonna tax you back to the Stone Age because people shouldn't have to go to work if they don't want to. And instead of saying "Well, excuse me, you right-wing, reactionary, xenophobic, homophobic, anti-education, anti-choice, pro-gun, 'Leave it to Beaver' trip back to the fifties," we cowered in the corner and said "Please, don't hurt me." No more."
-The West Wing

What is the stigma about the term "liberal"? When I'm called a "bleeding heart liberal", I rest a little easier knowing I'm on the right track. Since my loyal trolls are so insistent on debate, why not explain to me why "liberal" is such a bad thing.

Warning: Debate is fine, but if there is a single personal attack or useless comment in your reply, it'll be deleted on sight.

Why do trolls hate America?

Democracy in print - now with 33% more troll!

Hrmph. I didn't expect everyone to be a fan of our views, but slander... that one came way outta left field. Or is it libel when it's in writing? I don't know, I'm not a "wealthy trial lawyer". The point is, if you take offense to my views, try and rebutt them. When you resort to ad hominem arguments, you make us all dumber for having read it. Also, I hate to show my fascist side and delete comments. But here's a little tip if you insist on trolling:

That's right. 7/16 of an inch - that's the distance you have to move your pinky to turn off the caps lock button. This may be a big task for you, but I promise, if you lower your voice, you'll still be heard. Don't get me wrong, I'm still deleting your comment, but at least then I'll read it first.

I promise we'll get into politics next time.
