    I made a barely coherent comment at 11:30PM yesterday evening because I despise Andrea Mitchell.  I'm not going to apologize for the comment.  Frankly, who she's married to is of no import to me.

    What she does with her esteemed position among the beltway punditocracy is indeed relevant.  I didin't say or even imply that she fucked her way to the top.  What I DID say (and imply) is that she's a fave on the beltway cocktail circuit, and that has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH HER GENDER OR CAREER PATH.  

    I could say the same thing about David Fucking Broder.  And you'd defend him, too?

    The test of whether we're willing to stand up to the thugs that wrote voter suppression laws is this: Are you willing to hold hands with someone that needs hand holding in order to qualify to vote?

      You expect me to understand that you made "a barely coherent comment because you despise Andrea Mitchell."  Fine.  You're allowed to despise Andrea Mitchell, although for my money, I wouldn't waste hate on her.  Hate is far too corrosive to give it that freely.  But that's a whole other enchilada of a conversation.

      You DID NOT say she's a favorite on the beltway cocktail circuit.  You said "all she cares about is A list cocktail parties." Please, at least have the courage to own your words.

      There are many who are favorites on the beltway cocktail circuit.  Some of them who I know you would not demean in this way, because you agree with them.

      Don't try to straw man me with David Broder.  I'm not going to fall for it, and it isn't relevant to the discussion at hand. You know, Richard, you should be happy that 21 people here agree with you.  I don't.

      And again, it's not because I'm here to champion Andrea Mitchell.  But because I don't think you made a substantive argument.  I think you smeared someone unfairly, when there was plenty of reasons and ways to take on Ms Mitchell, fairly.  IMO, you just didn't pick one of them.  And in all fairness, you're not the only one on this thread to do so.

      No need for you to apologize for your opinion.  Stand with it.  And I'll stand with mine.

      I don't.
