So much for civility in politics

Washington (CNN) - If it's over, it was nice while it lasted.

The brief period of civility in politics in the wake of the shootings in Tucson, Arizona, two weeks ago was tested this week. Some in the nation's capital forgot the call for a government that's worthy of 9-year-old shooting victim Christina Green.

    Yes, I agree: so much for civility. But why be civil to the biggest buch of proudly rightwing neo-morons that have graced our nation since their ancestors spiraled the nation into civil war 150 years ago all so they could contiunue the repulsive institution of slavery? That a whole party, and especially its leaders, freely substitute dogmatic-driven [R]ightwing stupidity and purposful ignorance for reason and facts is a terrible insult to our country and its people. And The People need to stand up and say so! That's what freedom, and specifically the freedom of speech, are all about. These freedoms were established by our forefathers for the very reason of defending ourselves from the very worst of our species.

    Civility didn't last two days before the MSNBC far left hate squad broke into louder than usual acid speech. Then in short order, the idiots from the far left cranked up the "nazi "and "killer" garbage from the floor of the congress. Yeah, real nice civility!
