And it's not really even a defense, just an explanation of how the other side thinks. I think the Right gets too caught up attacking the Left's positions to defend their own sometimes. Okay, with this latest administration a lot of the time. I'm sure the Left does its fair share, but let's face it, the Right is King of Dirty Politics. Interestingly, or perhaps not, the opinion presented here makes me more sympathetic to the Right's cause than any amount of "flip-flopper, Frenchie-loving" attacks. But I suppose asking the electorate as a whole to take a look from the other side of the aisle would be too much to ask. I also think this is the main problem with the entire US/ME - Christian/Islam crisis. Extremist idealogues on both sides refuse to admit that the others, though they may not be entirely correct, at least might have a point in what they're saying and a justifiable reason (from their point of view) of what they're doing. As long as both sides use fear (another thread that needs to be started) to divide the people of the world, nothing will get accomplished. Anyway, I've rambled long enough, here's the article that impressed me so much.
