  •  The difference between the GOP (1+ / 0-)

    and the Democratic Party is that our party leaders try desperately to talk sense to the conspiracy nuts, or at least just ignore them. Bill Clinton tore into a 9/11 truther who was heckling him a few years ago an event, told him he was making us all look bad by spewing that nonsense. Also, our media personalities do the same. Bill Maher had a guy kicked out of his audience for screaming a bunch of crap about WTC 7 during a show.

    Both parties have their kooks. But the Dems do a reasonably good job of talking those folks off the ledge and debunking that stuff. The GOP actively promotes that crap. It didn't used to be this bad, but now it scares me a little how far they are willing to go with this shit.

    You can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America.
