We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"Joe, are Iranian nukes really such a hilarious topic?"
"Joe, I am a fellow American citizen trying to talk with you and, as such, I expect as much respectful behavior as I offer you. In fact, as a fellow citizen, I'd expect you to at least listen to my opinion before giggling like a girl."
Guess that's a big difference between me and libs assuming I represent typical (whatever that means) conservatives. I would not have approved, nor been happy with, that type of behavior from Bush or Cheney in their debates.
I wonder if Plugs was on some kind of exotic designer dope because he clearly went all Captain Bizarro. I imagine the average suburban mom is rushing off to mail in her early ballot. "Yeah I think I'll vote for the suave Commie and the lunatic" "Just what America needs"
