41. Good points

Especially "...he has a way of capturing the way real Democrats should think. His use of the English language is really the way we all want to talk when discussing what the Republican Wingnuts do"

Thank gawd for the written word, and writers like the Rude Pundit for taking advantage of the skills he has. Most Republicans, and other ignorant rightwing blowhards, have what I consider the worst trait a human can have and that is an overwhelming defensiveness to every other opinion. Probably because they know deep down that they are so wrong on so many things if they honestly thought about them and are in desperate fear someone will see through their fragile shell all painted up with stars n stripes.

If you used the Spoken word on these yahoos you'd never get past "If you look at the facts...." before being drowned out by bug-eyed insults and spittle. Thus we progressives, all know we have to walk on rice paper around them, being ever so careful not to accidentally say something that might be construed as lording over them with such things as "facts" and "truth"....showing off our liberal elitism. It is so so painful trying to debate any issue with a dye in the wool social and economic conservative in person that I always leave feeling I have just wasted those moments I will never get back.

Its refreshing to be able to read someone say exactly what I'd like to say....and also know that at least a few wingnuts will read his column..not that it will do any good, but at least they will see just how much actual contempt they are regarded with outside their bagger bubble.
