Name calling


May 8, 2013
I was dismayed with your use of the word "idiot" to describe a conservative representative from Arkansas with whom you disagree politically. To me, the use of an ad hominem indicate an inability to articulate a cogent position and result in "name calling." You can do better.

Secondly, you refer to him as an "ideologue." I have never seen you use that adjective to describe any Democrat? I guess stating your belief is OK with liberals as long as you agree with them and everyone else is an "ideologue?"

Thirdly, why is it "insensitive" to say what many others have thought but are too cowed by political correctness to express publically? I would not be surprised if many Boston liberals did wish that they had a gun to protect their family during the ensuing man hunt.

Lastly, I don't know why liberals have such a hard time admitting that we are at war with radical Islam? Pretending that it is not so will only increase the chances of jihadist, who by the way, have been 100 percent Muslim so far, succeeding with soft targets like they did in Boston. Using common sense, like the police have learned in New York City, indicate that there are common signs to watch for. However, the politically correctly watching of nuns instead of Muslims will continue to result in Boston like atrocities.
