169. Oh good, let's trade insults. I can always count on DU for an insult but not an exchange of ideas.

So does your idealized ethos champion a moment of silence upon Dick Cheney's death? How about those swell folks who work so hard to oppose gay people? Or those who enact or support policies that perpetuate a war (like Iraq, maybe)?

I'm advocating the position that dead people can be criticized. Yesterday, I offered well-informed criticism of Tony Snow when he was alive; I'll continue to do so now that he's dead. I'll even do it today.

If that puts me on the lowest level of your moralistic high-ground -- so be it. I'm not interested in your vantage point if it's the refuge of those who would condemn the critics of those who should be condemned.
