    the cut and paste of who recced what comment.  I don't know why you waste the space, anyone can click on the numbers to see but if makes you feel cool go ahead. Although, my comment wasn't to you, and I am not sure why you know or care what comments I recommended.

    I am sorry that you equate "whining" with telling people they think Obama is the "messiah" which is a very right-wing term.

      blatant hypocrisy is lost on you then?

      You claimed in your comment that "anti-intellectual crushing of dissenters" was an insult.  If that is the case, then certainly calling Liberal members of DKos "whin[y] progressive purists" and characterizing their critiques of the President as an "Obama-trashing bitchfest" must be an insult as well.

      All I am asking for is some sort of consistency from you when it comes to what is, and is not, an insult.  Perhaps that is too tough of a request?

        I concede that the one small part of that long comment was not tactfully said, but I recced the spirit of that comment, not the insults themselves. They were saying more than that, and IMO whining is annoying and doesn't help change anything. Second, I believe pretty much ALL Kossacks are Liberals and I don't have a problem with Liberals, as I am one myself.  The reason I hr'd the above comment was the fact it put people here in 2 distinct categories, "People who view Obama as the lesser of two evils, as opposed to viewing him as the messiah".    

        I do not need to tell you that is a very loaded term to begin with, and then to say that you fall into that category if he isn't getting your vote because he is the"lessor" of 2 "evils" is absurd and more than insulting. This is a blog that is here to elect Democrats, and the fact that that 10 people here that recced a comment calling our Democratic President's supporters messiah worshipers is completely fucked up. He has my vote without reservation,  and I am positive I am not the only one based on this and many other diaries here.  That is the point that keeps getting lost.
