Progressive Civility

It'a an oxymoron, I know, like "jumbo shrimp."

But you gotta get a load of Paul Krugman, who's just voicing the truth of what progressives practice all the time. See, "Civility is the Last Refuge of Scoundrels":

At the beginning of last week, the commentariat was in raptures over the Serious, Courageous, Game-Changing Ryan plan. But now that the plan has been exposed as the cruel nonsense it is, what we’re hearing a lot about is the need for more civility in the discourse. President Obama did a bad thing by calling cruel nonsense cruel nonsense; he hurt Republican feelings, and how can we have a deal when the GOP is feeling insulted? What we need is personal outreach; let’s do lunch!
Hey, now let's see Krugman go after the enemies of Sarah Palin, who were showing their true colors today in Madison. William Jacobson's got that: "Public Employee Union Dance-a-Thon Practice In Madison":
On display in Madison, Wisconsin today, as related to me by reader Jim, who sent this photo:
"This guy was next to me screaming for two hours. Here he is showing civility and tolerance to Sarah Palin."

How many of the "progressive" protesters are former tea-partiers who feel betrayed by Walker? I am not sure you have accurately diagnosed what is occurring in Wisconsin.

I am not sure you even tried.
