It just kills me to read the ridiculous names people have been coming up with for the opposite political party within debate. Dumbocrats, DemoRATS, Obamacrats, ReTHUGlicans and Repugnicans are just a few that come to mind. Let’s quit the grade-school name-calling and focus on the issues/Photo Editor Jake Barber, UI Argonaut. More Off The Cuff here.
DFO: I agree w/Jake. I've gotten to the point that almost all name-calling in blog comments is a turnoff. I stop reading when I see some of the juvenile swipes that some here take at the other side. It might play to the choir. But it loses the desired effect of swaying support.
Question: How about you. Do you mind the dismissive jargon that some partisans use for the other side?
