I seldom go here…

08 Sep

out loud and in public (but H usually gets an earful….) This is mostly because I think that too many people open their mouths when they have little to no idea what they’re actually talking about.

And again, McLaren comes to my rescue with more eloquence, grace and knowledge than I can muster:

A plea for a new generation of Republican leadership (click link)

This quote gets to the issue of why I can’t sit quietly on this one.

“The Obama administration needs a worthy loyal opposition, just as any group in power does, and the president himself often says so. But people who shout “hitler, nazi, socialist” don’t constitute a worthy loyal opposition.  Nor do the birthers. Nor do the nostalgics, who seem to keep waking up in the 1980’s year after year, quoting Ronald Reagan.”

I told H last night:  I’m so tired of the demonization of “the other side”.    The fact is, I don’t think that either side has it completely right and to completely and blindly align myself and label myself with one political side seems stupid to me.

All I want is to be on the other side from stupid.
