The Difference

Those on the left side of the political spectrum are just a bit different than the rest of us.

Let's contrast the response of leftists to Karl Rove's supposed involvement in the outing of Valarie Plame, the CIA agent and response of conservatives (and libertarians) to the Kelo decision.

A left-wing blogger wants us to dump poop on Rove's door step.

The right-wing/libertarian response is to use the law against David Souter to take his house through what he himself declared to be legal means.

Which is the more reasonable response to something you don't agree with? Flinging poop or taking action commensurate with your grievance?

The problem here is that many people respond to poop flinging more readily than they do direct action because the media gives poop flinging more air time.

The conservative/libertarians, need to start putting up their poop deflectors instead of responding to flinging. If you ignore liberals long enough, they will go away.
