Response to Comments

I have been planning this for some time now, but never got around to it till now.

A few weeks ago I wrote a post explaining why I think that Liberals are better than Conservatives. This engendered two pretty stupid responses.
Liberals are better than conservatives?!?!

Maybe when the sun rises in the west...

Liberals are liars, they have to be since facts ALWAYS undercut their stance, regardless of what the stance is...

Liberals believe in wealth redistribution, in other words THEFT...

Liberals are PARASITES, living off the productivity of others...

Liberals are clueless since who but the clueless believe in, "fair"?

Liberals don't believe in the Constitution and live in abysmal ignorance of Artile 1, Section 8 of the Constitution but are damn sure that LBJ's War on Poverty is part of the Constitution....
Not much to say in response to this one - I have to admit that I've never even heard of Artile 1. Course the author might have been referring to Article one.

Oh, and I have a job and am gainfully employed. I don't live off the productivity of others. And I'm not a liar.

But I wanted this up to respond to the second one.
No liberal version of Ann Coulter? How about Al Franken? Bill Mahr? Believe me, you have plenty vile spewing, personally attacking people on your side of the isle. Liberals don't see both sides, opening themselves up to all points of view. They only open themselves to views that they think are "open minded" and "tolerant". i.e. gay marriage, paying poor people for sitting on their asses, and throwing personal responsibility out the window.
Here's the difference. Ann Coulter's entire shtick is attacking Liberals just for being liberals. Kind of like commenter number one. Liberals are bad lazy evil people, stupid dumbasses. That's different than Al Franken or Bill Mahr taking shots at individuals. And, for the record, Bill Mahr isn't a liberal. I know he's in the media, so you think he is, but he's really not.

Attacking an individual may be base and mean (and we do have people on our side of the fence who do that) but it's not the same as attacking an entire political movement.
