the "controversy" over the cardboard cutout of Hillary and the dweeb from the Obama camp
is ridiculously overblown. The man was stupid, thoughtless and asinine.

But it does point out a kind of arrogant rudeness I've detected among some of the Obama "cultists."

1. Arrogant rudeness?
Do you mean groping a cutout, or being faux-offended?

I am lost here...

2. I mean the individual exhibits an arrogance and a lack of decorum
unbecoming in someone in his position.

It calls into question the sincerity of his--and Obama's--words.

19. I don't think Obama is not to be trusted.
But I do think the Favreau guy has some 'splainin' to do and needs to keep his head down for a while.

4. Anyone who observes the behavior of others has a "rudeness detector."
Don't be silly.

12. Actually, I wasn't involved in Obama arguments during the primaries much.
I'm a Kucinich guy, so the primaries were pretty much over for me before they started.

I apparently hit some sort of hot button though.

16. for real? a faction of hillary\edwards supporters used to love calling Obama fans cultists...
Edited on Mon Dec-08-08 05:14 PM by dionysus

Not all of them by any means, but a very vocal group...

18. I stayed the hell out of GD:Primaries
with one or two exceptions.

I wasn't a fan of either Hillary or Obama until after Edwards was out. Sorry. :shrug:

Seemed to me that both campaigns were in large part "cults of personality," which is what I referred to. I sincerely doubt anyone is taking Clinton or Obama communion. Or are you . . . ?
