Re: RE: [newtech-1] McCain picks Sarah Palin as VP (IdiotXY + IdiotXX)

I think it's funny when the GOP's immediately turn to name-calling when they have nothing constructive to say.

Here's my watch list: Liberal, Tax & Spend, Flip Flopper, Appeaser, Tree-hugger... Who wants to add some.
Frankly I think the Dems need to take ownership of these names to disarm their use, can think of a specific example but won't use it here, you can guess what I'm talking about.

Here's my take: 
Liberal as opposed to closed minded, sure, I agree with that. 
Tax & Spend: On things that bring widespread benefit, absolutely.
Flip Flopper: Instead of blindly following my original idea, you mean like having a plan "B" to suit the dynamic nature of the universe we live in, probably a better plan than total ignorance based on pre-conceived ideaology.
Appeaser: Well, sometimes honey catches more flies than a swatter. If making someone feels appeased brings about the real results we need, then appease isn't a dirty word either. If by appease you mean blindly accept what a proven dictator says while ignoring their actions, then you need to review the dictionary. MIne says:

pacify or placate (someone) by acceding to their demands amendments have been added to appease local pressure groups. See note at pacify.relieve or satisfy (a demand or a feeling) we give to charity because it appeases our guilt.
So if, by appease you mean to discuss things on an open platform instead of demanding war as the only solution then go ahead with your childish name-calling and bullying. I'll just make sure that negotiated solutions are verifiable and suit the needs of all parties involved. How does this sound, balance our need for long-term security with their need to appear to not be our puppets?
Enough name-calling. It's time for Karl Rove's politics to bite the big one.
Can anyone supply any other common right wing buzzwords that I forgot?
