54. Yes. Let's be fair here. The WH said environmentalists' "policies" are silly and unserious.

SO much better. SUCH an important distinction. Wonderful point about Rahm, too. Calling someone stupid is SO different from calling them a "stupid person." Heavens, how unfair that whole thing was.

For instance, someone might criticize a comment here as being "intellectually challenged," while only a silly nitwit would take that as a suggestion the poster himself was "intellectually challenged." The first is hardly an insult at all. It would be a "lie" to even suggest such a thing.
