43. Some of you people were born to lose, I swear.
How many times have you heard exasperated people right here on DU say how the country's gone stupid; that it's a nation of sheeple? How many times have the Republicans demonstrated that hitting below the belt *works* in this country?

You can admit this fact to yourself, but then shy away from twisting the knife politically because it hurts your sensibilities... or because you think the public will suddenly grow a sense of honor and wisdom, and reject such attacks. They *won't*.

You back away from things like this out of a sense of politeness and the only thing your protecting is your own ego.
