Maybe We Really Can’t All Just Get Along

By him I mean Romney. I remember in 2004 when the right wing press declared that Democrats like to turn on eachother when Kerry lost and was criticized by the Democrat party and left-wing pundits. That was a drop in the ocean compared to the absolute destruction the right wing press has visited on Romney. Diversity of opinion indeed.

If the right and the GOP had "diversity of opinion" then Ron Paul would have gotten more debate speaking time, would not have been characterized as "unelectable" by the media and the party bosses, and would have had a speaking spot at the RNC in Tampa.

I'm not saying the Democrats are any better, but at least they let all the wackos and nut jobs have a voice.

During the Los Angeles riots of 1992, Rodney King famously asked, “Can’t we all just get along?” The answer should be an easy and unequivocal “yes,” but it seems less and less likely these days.

King was speaking in term of race, but the same could be said of political ideology. Liberals, conservatives and every other point on the political spectrum used to co-exist fairly easily (with the exception of left-wing anarchists who don’t get along with anyone). But these days détente has given way to anger and open hostility.

Some, not all, people have become less civil to those...
