On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” New York Magazine Writer-at-Large Andrew Sullivan argued, “Liberals have to be careful not to sound so f*cking condescending and smug, as if they know it, and start actually engaging the other side and persuading people.”




Sullivan said there was a “giant cloud of smug” above MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow during her Trump tax story. Liberals have to be careful to not so fucking condescending and smug as if they know it and start engaging the other side and persuading people.

He continued, “Liberals have to be careful not to sound so f*cking condescending and smug, as if they know it, and start actually engaging the other side and persuading people.” http://www.breitbart.com/video/2017/03/17/andrew-sullivan-liberals-avoid-sounding-fcking-condescending-smug/

When a legislator pushes legislation that will literally result in the deaths of some Americans … he's a heartless bastard.

That your mantra, and that of those like you, is, "fuck you, I got mine," defines you.

There are worse things to do with the money that comes out of a taxpayer's pocket than doing positive for human beings.

Does anyone else ever wonder … "Where did the term "Compassionate Conservative" come from?

AMAC - oooooo........ooooooo......me, me, me, I have, I have!!!

I've wondered whether someone misinterpreted the term when in reality the person meant to say cum passionate conservative.  I quickly dismissed this as we know passion isn't necessarily connected to conservatives.  Then I thought maybe they meant compass shun ate can serve to live but that kinda didn't make sense so I dismissed that also.  Finally after much wondering and pondering and mulling it over I've come to the conclusion that it's an old wives tale that was started some time ago.

It's almost like the wives tale of "don't step on a crack or it will break your mother's back".  Now, we all know this isn't true but still some of us avoid stepping on the crack.  As an agnostic I won't say there aren't any compassionate conservatives but I haven't necessarily seen one.........unless we're talking about tax breaks to the very wealthy.  There seems to be much compassion for those poor rich people.

Like with 99% of all cable news personalities, I've never watched them on TV.  I'm only familiar with them by name and on youtube.  In the case of Rachel Maddow, what I have seen of her program snippets, she seems condescending, however, that is why she appeals to a large enough niche audience.  To me, it's all entertainment.

Actually I am in a very nice family room with a big screen TV (turned to MSNBC of course) two dogs. a pit group sofa with a very conformable chaise lounge that is good for a nap. It looks out onto the patio where the swimming pool is and we have been very lucky that in the past couple of days our pool has been visited by some very beautiful Mallard Ducks. Right now I m sitting at the breakfast bar that separates the family room from the kitchen. I just finished a great Jack In The Box sandwich and am sipping some very cheap scotch. I was typing earlier while watching "To Kill A Mockingbird" on the TV on the VCR (yes I still have many VHS tape).

I am listening now to CNN as they report on Trump going bat shit crazy on twitter, most of which makes no sense and he is sounding so defensive that he is practically confusing that he collaborated with the Russians during the campaign. He should have stayed in bed. He has an AR15 pointed at his feet and is firing on full auto. He is digging his own grave right now and the pundits are already talking about how it is going to be after he is gone.

I am not an expert on Psychiatry. However I have a great deal of experience from both sides of mental illness in America, so yes, I am something of an expert. I certainly know much more about it then the average layman.

Fucking (German pronunciation: [ˈfʊkɪŋ], rhymes with "booking"[2]) is an Austrian village[3] in the municipality of Tarsdorf,[4] in the Innviertel region of western Upper Austria. The village is 33 kilometres (21 mi) north of Salzburg, 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) east of the river Inn, which forms the German border.

Despite having a population of only 104 in 2005, the village has drawn attention for its unusual place name[5][6] in the English-speaking world. Its road signs are a popular visitor attraction, and they were often stolen by souvenir-hunting tourists until 2005, when the signs were modified to be theft-resistant.

 When they say liberals talk down to them, right-wingers mean that liberals keep using facts and careful, peaceful language. Liberals will be accused of talking down to them until liberals agree completely with them.

And, by the way, no one talks down more to those they disagree with than right-wingers – ex. “We patriots.” “We true Americans.” “We Moral Majority.” “We Christians.”

And those who accuse liberals and others of that do so because they can't make a fucking reasonable argument against something that pisses them off but which they know damned-straight well is on target.

It's a manifestation of intellectual insecurity, sometimes of bigotry and prejudices, or … JUST PLAIN F'n IGNORANCE OR STUPIDITY.

Actually, the response to which you allude explains the article's mischaracterization of providing valid rebuttals to falsehoods, lies … and MISCHARACTERIZATIONS like the very seeded article posits.

A pronouncement is not necessary a fact … in fact … it generally is comprised of a broad-brush generalization intended to stereotype and denigrate … an editorial under the guise of a factual report.
