Why bother to even rant about there being “limits” to partisan demonization anymore? THIS is now becoming no news and American politics is becoming about trying to destroy or discredit those who dare state a view with which you disagree or one that you feel undermines your own argument.
But there are some Americans who are getting sick of it. In my own case it’s why when I travel now, I listen to XM satellite radio and tune to CNN, POTUS (Politics of the United States), CSPAN, NPR, and the BBC.
