Can't extreme liberals and extreme conservatives agree not to pick on every Republican or Democrat's mistake? Obama accidentally writes the wrong year. So what? Didn't you ever make a mistake? Simply because one is prominent in the political landscape, one has to be almighty, never make mistakes? The next time, extreme liberals will point out that a conservative leader like Newt Gingrich made a grammar mistake. Extreme conservatives will attack Obama for misspelling a word. Does that prove that both people are unworthy to be politicians?
Really, I'm sick of this idiotic bickering over insignificant issues. Instead of constructively talking about the effects of Obama's stimulus plans or debating about the 2012 primaries, we debate about people's time mistakes

The strange, racist attack on Herman Cain « Hot Air
It will not change until there is an agreed truce and the Left will attack those on their side who cross over the line just as quickly as they will attack their opponents. The argument must confront the issues of the day rather than demonizing the opposing candidates, but that is unlikely to happen within this generation.
Yes, i have no room to talk, though I once tried to discuss the issues, and still do occasionally. But i find the best way to deal with the committed leftists is to ridicule them and their candidates. They are not a very intelligent group and are easily made fun of.
Sarah Palin, for example, a former vice Presidential candidate, is still the subject of hate by the Leftists. No Republican would do the same thing to Joe Leiberman.
Even John Edwards, the former running mate of John Kerry, largely escapes the ridicule of the Right, despite his being charged with criminal offenses. The Left will continue to attack Sarah Palin while John Edwards, a serious presidential for the Left at one time, is led away in handcuffs. These are not serious people, and deserve the ridicule they receive.
No Leftist, as far as I have seen, has never repudiated the racist attacks on Herman Cain, or other Black candidates who have dared to run as Republicans. It goes back at least as far as Clarence Thomas in my memory, which was another stain on the reputation of the racist Democratic Party.
When Republican primary voters actually elect a person of color perhaps you won't look so ridiculous at calling the Democrat party racist.

Ah yes, another inspired, in-depth left wing political analysis. His name was never even mentioned yet you feel the need to call him "a joke". Because he's Black, right?Alan Keyes was a joke. It doesn't matter what color he is.
I've already mentioned what happened to Clarence Thomas and now Herman Cain. Democrats will eagerly and viscously attack any Black person who dares run as a Republican. Their overt racism is there for all to see.When Republican primary voters actually elect a person of color perhaps you won't look so ridiculous at calling the Democrat party racist.
I missed where Cain was "viscously" attacked.
