  •  Missing the point. So far no cure for that. (6+ / 0-)

    I never understood the ability of otherwise intelligent people to switch a core position depending on which personality is involved in the issue at hand.

    I understand the political reasons some have for backing a Democratic administration, being as the other side is bouncing-off-the-walls crazy. But it's a sliding scale of support, right? You're no more going to back Obama for advancing the police state than you would him killing puppies. One must draw the line.

    Nor would any reasonable person accept the fallacy that because the messenger is flawed (Snowden/Greenwald are poopyheads) the information must be discounted.

    I'd like to think that science is working 24/7 on a cure for missing the point. I wish "our top people" were on it. Alternate universe, perhaps, but not here.
