    share of the stupid. But over time we have been successful at driving out undesirables. Whether it is by actually auto banning them or by ganging up on them to harass them into wanting to leave, we have been able to (eventually) get riffraff to leave. The Snowden fan club is likely not going to be any different. They will tire of being mocked and will eventually not want to be with so many of us who "don't get it" and will leave. Or, they will change their minds (as many have over the past weeks as more info came out on just who this creep is). The way to enjoy this site is to a) not take it too seriously, especially those users and diaries that represent the world of stupid, and b) to have patience, because those elements eventually get run out of town.

    Hang in there.

      I sing praises in the church of nonsense, but in my heart I'm still an atheist, demanding sense of all things.

      This is the most pernicious, offensive comment that I've seen on Daily Kos in a long while. We are a progressive community. You write this on America's Birthday? This is your sense of community, of "E Pluribus Unum"?

      Your comment is self-righteous, condescending, ugly and - on a site where more Kossacks have been rooting for Snowden than against him, out-of-touch. Nobody asked you to be our Grand Inquisitor. As long as you have that attitude, doc2, you are not the solution, you're part of the problem.

        The full impact of that comment didn't hit until you put a bit more light on it.

        That's incredibly damning, actually.
