that brings out the worst in people?
Not sure what one of my (former) regular reads has against Obama the candidate (except that he's a Democrat, and a liberal, and young, and popular, and not Catholic) but it seems to deeply affect how she feels about Obama-the-person-she's-never-even-met-and-actually-seems-to-know-little-if-anything-substantive-about. For some reason, it seems particularly problematic for this particular writer that Obama's father is a Muslim. Oh, and she doesn't have a civil word in her head for Hillary Clinton, either.
Also ironic, it seems, is that while this particular blogger (I'll not even bother linking to the blog) has all sorts of rumor-mongering, gossipy, name-calling and otherwise childish things to say about the candidates she does not support, she offers not one positive word about any candidate she thinks might be a better choice.
If one were to remove these most recent posts, the blog might seem like it is the writing of a faithful, liturgy-loving conservative Roman Catholic Christian ... which is what drew me to it in the first place. But now, it seems, it's a forum for hate.
Lord, have mercy.
Why do I hate election years? Nobody seems able to behave themselves.
God bless America, indeed.
