I posted the message below on our comments in response to a well-intended undecided visitor who thought we were acting a little hostile:
“One thing you should remember is that we’re in approximately the middle of the third quarter, and we’re two points ahead of a team that we think won by cheating the last time we played, and we are worried that the referees are siding with the other team.
So if we seem a bit touchy, it’s because we are.
And I think that most of us think that this is the most important election since at least 1980.”
As Newt Gingrich explained long ago, we’re in a war. In the heat of battle sometimes we snap on people a bit more quickly than we should.
I snap on people a LOT, and I suppose I’m wrong 5-10% of the time. As Newt Gingrich explained long ago, we’re in a war. I try to avoid collateral damage, but now and then I screw up.
