As they say, politics make strange bedfellows

He simply doesn't engage with others well. Which is essential in politics.

You must never have been in any position of authority within an organization.

You have to be nice to people you know for a fact are stabbing you in the back.

Tell you what- I'll post of Jimmy Carter with Kissinger and you can disrespect him too.

If we agree on nothing else, we should all agree on that much.

It's like the short wave of Ron Paulism here that we squashed out almost immediately.

There is no room on DU for supporters of racist libertarians and fascists.

10. The problem f/Sanders supporters having a huge majority on DU>>>

Juries are essentially rigged in their own favor and this enables them to keep escalating the hateful rhetoric, the twisting of facts and go deeper into denial. There is no way to bridle their excesses.
That is why in politics, I firmly believe in having some opposition. To keep things on an even keel.

85+% of DU'ers are Sanders supporters. They can say anything they want and get away with it.

I alerted on a Sanders supporter for telling someone to kiss their ass. It stood.

It's going to get worse and worse.
