I Try to Like Rachel Maddow…

16 Nov

I try to like Rachel Maddow I really do, but this is the kind of segment that bothers me. I mean she frames the argument like Republican’s are the only ones who are ridiculous and have a “kooky” base. Because President Bush (G.W.) was treated with nothing but polite respectful disagreement from Democrats over the past 8 years.

All she had to do was talk a little bit about the culture of caustic political dialogue to win me over. Her ultimate conclusion is valid and worth consideration, but you can’t ignore that bipartisanism of such radical and seemingly mindless opposition posed by Tea Bagers or Bill Maher. Everybody has their crazy political cross bear; for Republicans it’s the birthers, for Democrats it’s the last eight years of comparing George Bush to monkeys.
