Over at Captain’s Quarters, there is a discussion of civility. On the previous thread is what appears to be his response to Ann Coulter’s comments. It’s a good post, but the comments at the second link are instructive as well.
They are part of the reason that Republicans got spanked in the 2006 mid-terms. Conservatives are not a majority – it is less likely that those who view comments like Ann Coulter’s as acceptable discourse are. Yet, there are some who insist that their use of should not be questioned.
I’m not buying that at all. I refuse to be silent about stuff I feel is unacceptable, and if the Ann Coulter groupies can’t handle that, then maybe they should prevail upon Ann to use her brain (which graduates of Ivy League law schools presumably have) before she engages her mouth.
Is that an unreasonable request?
