    No, it's not. It's what leads to our current state of political discussion by way of mindless insults and innuendo and playing a sad game of one downsmanship.

    Actually, for some time now and in several threads, I've been highlighting partisan hypocrisy here, to shame those who participate in the mindless insults and innuendo into stopping it.

    We've already ascertained the stance of several of our right-leaning friends, who believe Reid should be "tarred and feathered" (among other things) for his use of racial stereotypes, but are quite adamant about giving Steele a pass for his own similar comments. My pointing out Steele's racial insensitivities and questioning why Reid's are considered any worse than Steele's is not one downsmanship; it is leveling the field. And it's a legitimate question/challenge.

    As for myself, I've stated that Reid's racial stereotypes are foolish and unacceptable. Just as I have Steele's. But I haven't called for anyone to be fired or physically harmed, as many on the right have been doing in regard to Reid.

    As I've said repeatedly, either call out EVERY ignorant instance of racial stereotypes or NONE.

    Which side are you on, Redress? All or none? Should we point out such blind, ugly partisanship and call it for the hypocrisy it is, or ignore it and hope it will go away?

    Don't try to deny it, that's all you have. You nothing to share on policy.

    I have already shared my views on this topic. Why should I repeat myself for your convenience? I don't think it's a matter of policy as it is a matter of free speech. I am for free speech.

    Just because Trent Lott voluntarily resigned does not mean that Reid has to do the same. Besides Tren Lott had a lot of other skeletons in his closet besides his remarks about race. If I recall right he was being investigated for some sort of corruption before his race remarks.

    What you are saying is that it would be politically correct for him to resign.

    If this is not true then why don't you tell me what law he broke.

    Your problem in convincing me is that you have a record of calling most everybody who disagrees with you a stupid liberal. You are painting with a big brush and trying to label and stereotype your opponents.

    You are in lock step with one faction of the republican party who are extremist ideologues, Chuckie baby.

    Actually my comments about Reid really had nothing to do with his insult of Obama. My complaint with Reid is that he is violating his oath of office, violating the constitution, conducting the proposed healthcare bill in secret, bribing congressmen and senators. Now in regards to his comment about Obama, I said that he should resign, he would expect no less from his counter parts to do the same if they made similar comments. Other than I stand by my statement, he's a Sh**bag and undeserving of any respect at this point, and if he was in the private sector committing these acts he would be locked up.
