Quote of the Day, Jr.
I'm not going to officially "quote" myself, but I thought I'd also bring back this one paragraph from a piece from August of last year called "When Complaints Go Marching In" because it really kind of sums up the point I've made quite a few times here when it comes to self-defeating liberals:
"I've voiced my irritation about this kind of thing before so it's not really worth repeating at length, but suffice it to say these days I actually read far fewer left-slanted political op-ed pieces than I do those from the right. That's because it boils my blood a hell of a lot less to hear Obama's occasionally psychotic sworn enemies rake him over the coals than it does those who claim to share his general ideals -- the whining brats who can't tell the difference between demanding "smart accountability" and constantly complaining that because they didn't walk outside their front doors the morning after his inauguration to find that marijuana and gay marriage were mandatory, we'd abolished the military and built a giant cruelty-free food co-op at Ground Zero, Obama had somehow let them down."
Again, I'm not saying you don't hold Obama accountable -- I'm saying that you do it in a way that recognizes political reality and doesn't help hand your enemy an easy victory. You don't do the other side's job for them.
