Partisan Politics of Hate

A thought of Saturday evening:

Many progressives had a free-floating, unprincipled, pathological hatred of George W. Bush. Increasingly, as the 2012 election approaches, I see the same damn thing from conservatives: a free-floating, unprincipled, pathological hatred of Barack Obama. These men could smile at a puppy, and their haters would go ballistic. As a result, the genuine and serious evils of these men are lost in a frothy sea of overpowering vitriol. That’s not good. So I urge you… be discriminating!

    I have heard a lot of people with the same reaction to Stalin and Hitler and Mao. They should use more tact when discussing these men.

    I remember encountering that attitude regarding Bill and subsequently, Hillary Clinton.
