64. This divisiveness issue is teevee induced. Once again it's complete bull.
Those who have voted GOP ought to be the ones searching their souls for where they went wrong and what THEY might do to change. How did the burden to apologize/change get placed onto the media's favorite whipping boy, the Left?

We should continue to try and wrest control of the allegedly democratic party from corporate control. Where the GOPers want to go from here is their problem. I, for one, am not going to stop fighting for my country.
