145. Couldn't you at least upgrade us to "Compassion Mafia"?
Anyway, I'm not saying you have to love the likes of Robert Novak. I'm not a Christian, so I'm under no divine injunction to love my enemies. I'm just saying that it's part of the progressive worldview to value the worth of each human being. You can politely disagree with Robert Novak -- in fact, you can loudly and impolitely opine that he's a fucking traitor who deserves the death penalty -- and yet still treat him as a human being.

There are xenophobes who think that Iraqis and Muslims don't count. There are homophobes who think that LGBT people don't count. There are conservaphobes who think that people like Robert Novak and Tony Snow don't count. Consider that you are known by the company you keep.
