    commenter at DKos?  I'm serious.

    Looking at your history . . . it's rather telling.

    You have two themes since coming here - that's it.

    a.  Obama has ties to . . . dark-skinned people.

    b.  Clinton does well . . . when she's not being unfairly characterized.

    You're more than a suspicious poster, IMHO.

      This diary is pretty much being rejected.

    •  Right (0+ / 0-)

      That is what I must be. I must be paid because I have opinions that differ from yours. I must be ignorant and a racist not to embrace Obama. It's called diversity, wader, but I guess you cannot tolerate it.

      I'm not hiding the fact I support Hillary, nor have I ever hid my thoughts on Obama's chances against the RAM and why his chances aren't good. I'm new to dkos so I  don't have a nice little collection of rant diaries like most folks here do.

      •  It's not a difference of opinion here (0+ / 0-)

        It's an utter lack of logic and comprehension that I hear.

        This comes off as so much ideology as to obfuscate facts on the ground and turn them into what they are not.  It creates spin without reasonable backing, IMHO.

        And, I've seen it before.  Which is why I've questioned your purpose.

        You can support Clinton without resorting to the appearance of being an ideological shill.

        •  Dismissive (0+ / 0-)

          And, I've seen it many times before that difference of opinion on dKos are dismissed as illogical or being ideological. I don't have time to write a thesis on identity politics to possibly cover every angle and counterpoint. I think to expect that from diaries on dKos is ridiculous. Here, I focused on an interview that contained a comment that I felt was taken out of context. Period. If you want to call me on broadening the context like others have (comments GF made in 1998), then I think that is a fair counterpoint to make. But to attack me personally, to call my motivations into question, then counter with more dismissive statements is empty, weak, and above all, arrogant.

          •  I didn't ask for a thesis (0+ / 0-)

            Because, I tend to write them at time, myself.  It takes more time than is necessary.

            As many have noted here, your logic doesn't follow and facts are being oddly turned inside out.  If you'd like, I'll create my own thesis on the matter.  Probably just end up as a rewording of so many posts, above, though.

            This has nothing to do with partisanship - that's your claim.  I'm concerned with your integrity and purpose, because of the fact that your assertions don't follow from facts or reasonable assumptions.  They seem entirely driven by ideology.

            Any Obama or McCain supporter doing the same thing would have their arguments broken down and/or suspected of being a shill.

            I'm all for reasoned debate and differences of opinion on what is effective vs. not.  I hate debating reality when facts are in front of our collective faces, though.

            •  BTW, I didn't write a thesis, but happened to (0+ / 0-)

              offer a different reply which offers some of my thinking on the matter you have addressed.

              As for whether she is directly a racist or not, see my opinion (and feel my skepticism) here.
