Yesterday I had a brief discussion with an older lawyer neighbor. He's passionately for Kerry.
He said he can't stand the "extreme Right Wingers" ranting about their "warlike attempts to build an American Empire and remake the Middle East in their own image."
I asked him to name a single extreme Right Winger and what "empire" are you talking about? And he responded gruffly "All of them are Extreme Right Wingers and the empire is the Middle East." He went on "If you can't see that Bush's people are dangerous extreme Right Wingers then I don't want to discuss it with you."
I responded "Trying to bring Democracy to the Middle East doesn't seem so bad to me." and he responded "You're not open minded, you're brain washed. I don't want to discuss this with you anymore."
WOW. These Kerry supporters have really drunk the Kool Aid. They can't even talk with people who don't agree with them.
