And at the end of the day, you have summed up the entire crux of the problem in one perfect sentence.
I went and found the OP's longing for the Good Old Days post that did it for me. By the time he'd posted this, I'd long since found him tedious and disruptive, but this was the thread that did it for me.
The "It Getters" as Bobbie Jo calls herself and I love that phrase, are in that thread. Bobbie Jo, frazzled, Raine, J17 and more than a few others tried to get the OP to see how blind and offensive he was being but to no avail. Look at the recs, JAG.
And his responses were exactly as dismissive, uninterested and blithely uncaring as I would expect from an "Ivy League" educated "former" Republican. Or the responses he was allowed to give before his loud mouthed and even wronger self-appointed bodyguards jumped in were.
