The TRUTH About InstaPundit

“He must be a RINO.”

PS: Yours truly thinks that in 21st century America partisans need to take up some meditation. The second someone disagrees with them they (and TMV has experienced it from both sides) go on the offensive and immediately question the motives of someone who disagrees with them — and try to force them into a defensive position. Here’s a HINT to all of you who do that: you might think “the best defense is a good offense” but more often than not it’s just offensive and alienates people. If someone doesn’t agree 100 percent with someone they MUST be the political enemy. And this attitude can turn people into just that.

    Does this mean instapundit will be moved to the center section 🙂

    I’ve been seeing that sort of thing in a lot of comments sections. I even saw one where people said you couldn;t be a liberatraian if you would vote for a democart.

    Can you imagine that? Even libertarians talking about ideological purity. The partisan things is obviously a pretty infectious disease. Aftre seeing this much of it, I regret making a “I dislike him, so I will vote against him” vote in the 2000 presidential elections. I never realized other people would grab hold of the idea and take it into enemy making.

    Oh Yeah, well you’re a RINO!!! Whoops, my apology I got carried away with the moment.

    I’ve seen it written and heard some people say you can’t be Christian if you voted for a Kerry. It’s gotten that bad.

  • AustinRoth

    I’ve seen it written and heard by some people that say you can’t be human if you voted for Bush. It’s gotten that bad.

  • Kim Ritter

    So I guess all the Christian robots voted for Bush, LOL!

  • Davebo

    I’ve seen it written and heard by some people that say you can’t be human if you voted for Bush.

    That’s just silly!

    Now, if you voted for Bush in 2004 I’d say there’s a good possibility you aren’t a sentient human.

    But I’m curious, where have you seen this written?

  • AustinRoth

    Actually, the TRUTH about Glenn Reynolds, his real dark secret, has been out there for some time.

    Puppy Shakes!

  • AustinRoth

    Davebo – Well, gosh man, I feel just like Gaylord Focker when Jack Byrnes catches him in a another little bit of hyperbole.

    Yep, you got me. I didn’t really read it anywhere. Just sounded like a funny take-off of the previous post.

    Does this mean I am no longer in your circle of trust?

  • David Block

    Libertarians usually talk about libertarian ideological purity, so yeah, they might say that if you vote for a democrat you are no longer a libertarian. There are other libertarians who say the reverse, though.

    You can pick your divisive libertarian!!
