    Because what was said was hyperpartisan.

    In fact, why use the term in the first place?
    Because it's accurate.

    Surely any sort of partisanship would always be viewed through the eyes of the beholder, which shouldn't come as a shock to anyone familiar with political discussions.

    What you call 'hyper-partisanship' might be called 'courage of convictions' by someone else.

    It's a useless term and an obvious waste of time and space.
    No. It points out hypocrisy and demonization. Issues like this add nothing. I would certainly hope that bringing up an issue as irrelevant as this does not make you think of "courage of convictions".

    Absolutely. Calling Bush a war criminal, saying Bush lied about WMDs, making fun of Palin for "seeing Russia", amongst some.

    But making fun of Palin is fun.

    Wait, people are still arguing about this nothing issue?

    ****, I screw up the date all the time.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    If a person's "courage of their convictions" go to someone writing an accidental date (because that's what it boils down to), then I'm going with "They need new convictions. Bigger, more important ones."

    Then why are you still trolling here with something that is completely unrelated to the theme of the thread?

    It is not up to you to define "demonization" or what is "hyperpartisan". You have the right to your views but you lack the intellect and depth of character to create or define either of these terms.

    The subject is "Obama flubs in guest book, dates visit "2008".

    Why can't you stick to subject?

    Are there no rules on this forum which would discourage this sort of trolling?

    It's only the trolling of the ironically named Captain Courtesy which is keeping this thread going. The subject of Obama's flub has been worn out long ago,

    You objected to my characterization of the OP as simply more right wingers digging a basement under what we believed to be the bottom of the barrel. Fine - that is your right. But as one of those who eagerly participate in that exercise, you seem motivated more by hurt feelings of the characterization than anything else.

    You admonish me to discuss "the political issues". That is the point. There is no issue here to discuss. Fifty pages of 500 posts supposedly built on the idea that President Obama put the wrong date down on a guestbook. The word absurd does not even begin to approach the ridiculousness of the entire idea.

    from the OP

    President Obama slipped up when he signed the guest book at Westminster Abbey in London today.

    Perhaps reminiscing over more exciting times for him, the president mistakenly wrote the date as "24 May 2008."
    Shakespeare wrote a play titled MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. It fits this to a tee.

    Had GWB done this every liberal newscast and comedy show would have had this as the lead story and do not deny it. FACT: We have all gotten the year wrong at the first month of a new year but to go back THREE years is troubling. Add to him spitting on British protocal by flapping his yap and toasting when he cannot see that no one is looking at him before the traditional playing of the Queens song is equally sto-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-pid.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
