Right-Wing Stereotype Bingo
The other day I jumped on a thread that I probably should have avoided. It's not that I cannot handle myself. It's just that it's obvious that it was an Echo Chamber and no amount of reason or logic was going to penetrate.
Look, if you support Trump and think he's doing the right things, that's fine. But no president is or ever was perfect, not even George Washington. You would gain a modicum of credibility from those on the opposite side if you couched your praise with phrases like "he did the right thing but should have followed established process" or "it does suck that he didn't think it all the way through."
But when you give him a free pass with no fault behavior Carte Blanche, you sound like the kid whose favorite team is already out of contention for the playoffs the first month of the season and you blame the refs instead of the coaches and players.
And then there is this:
What does any sane, rational person say to someone who doesn't consider New York and California part of America?

Comments Encouraged! And the nice thing about this blog is that I rarely get spam so don't need to moderate the comments.
I've set the comments up to allow anonymous users -- but I'd love it if you "signed" your comments (as some of my readers have done) just so you have an identity of sorts.
