  •  But I'm not apologizing for or defending Cheney. (0+ / 0-)

    You're just flat out wrong about that, so why shouldn't I surmise that you might have a difficult time with nuance?

      Not for me. For you. I will take you at your word that you don't mean to apologize for, or defend, Cheney. However, I am at least the third person to specifically note that you are coming off as though you do mean to defend him.  Other responders to your comments are also reacting to that impression from you. Try reading some of that carefully and see if you can figure out how to express what you do mean more effectively.

        Who other than you? And what statement or statements did I make that could even be remotely interpreted that way? You're the one claiming that I'm being unclear, so back it up.

          You and I are clearly on the same political side over in the Fishgrease diary, but over here you are just stubbornly entrenched in not hearing what people are saying to you.   You can read the thread yourself. Search for "combative".  Two other commenters said you were coming off that way. You read at least one, because you directly asked why they said that; which is when I (apparently fruitlessly) tried to explain why. When three people independently, and without a lot of rancor, point out you are coming across as combative it might be a good thought to figure out why your intentions are being so widely misunderstood. A key aspect of communication is that the message is usually what people hear, regardless of what you actually meant.   I have now well exceeded how far I am usually willing to go to the right margin in comment threads so I think we will have to conclude there will be no meeting of the minds between us on this particular question; and just move on to fight the good fight together on those issues where we do agree.
