    For someone who needs attention, any response--even a negative one--is a kind of reward.

    Legitimate criticism of the President's policies is welcomed here; but relentless, reflexive, unsubstantiated claims that he's an abject failure in every detail are met with cries of annoyance, disgust and even fury.  A person who feels that way about the President would normally seek out a more congenial audience, that welcomed and celebrated such relentless attacks.  But people who continually seek out diaries or stories with any positive viewpoint (photo diaries, Saturday's Weekly Address stories, 'thank you' diaries like this one) in order to toss grenades into them clearly need the attention.

    Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it. --Mark Twain
