    cheat, people remember and don't trust you.'

    Sometimes I wonder how much of the Republican behavior is genuine retarded social development and how much is just flat lying and various machinations to attain their aims. I suppose the ratio changes between individuals, but so much of their crap is stuff they should have learned or grown out of by the end of grade school. Maybe we should print up a 'Grownup's Guide' and start referring to it. I'm personally fond of the Goofus and Gallant dichotomy approach from Highlights Magazine, but even just a list of developmental mileposts that children should have achieved along the way could be useful. Sort of a not-quite-Emily-Post guide to adult behavior. ::sigh::

      so long as the Democrats look weak.  That's the key to understanding it.

        ... to "strength" at all costs.

        You don't beat bullies by joining them. And the self-protection you think you're affording yourself by choosing to give the bully respect, will only protect you temporarily... until the bully's whims change, whenever the hell they feel like it, and then turn on you.

        Bullies are NOT to be trusted, followed, or respected!

        enough. And a few won't even care then. That small percentage of these assholes can't be educated or rehabbed, they can only be contained and kept away from anything breakable/important.
