34. Contrary to your strawman, the team I'm on isn't the best because I'm on it...
Just the opposite. I'm on the team I'm on because it's the best. Things that support the other team (which is bad in-itself) and not simply because I'm not on it) can go to hell.

Criticism: great - I do it myself - as do many others - routinely.

Criticism that cannot be distinguished from the other team's: fuck off.
Criticism that permits or solicits republican support: fuck off.

Don't ever complain about someone not distinguishing you from republicans, when you refuse to distinguish yourself.

I hold myself to the same standard. Of course, nobody would ever mistake my criticism for a republican's. (To their credit, people here are pretty clear that I'm a dick, but in no manner am I a republican.)
