I just don't think the actual topic of the thread is really a political issue. The issue is more "don't be a jerk to people" which is fairly apolitical.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 22, 2012 6:55:59 PM PST
Agreed. I tried to only devote a small part of a long post to that, but twztid13 seemed caught up on it.

So you blame it on me? That is very disingenuous. I was replying to someone else, that was replying to someone that brought up FOX news. Wow. Just wow.

The way it works is - the action defines the party. Surely you can understand that. Someone running as a Republican in California & married to a Kennedy is NOT a Republican. Surely you don't believe Zell Miller is a Democrat in 2004 do you?

It wasn't disingenuous, it was simply incorrect. My apologies.

Looking at that post, I thought you were replying directly to the OP, since it did not look like you were quoting someone else. Just try to make a bigger distinction between what you are saying and what part of your post is your own.

Of course he is a Republican. He ran on the Republican ticket. Why is that so hard to agree with?

That's what quotes are for, no?

Because someone can say anything. Obama can say he is a bird, but that doesn't make it true. Actions are what matters in any instance.

Let me try to explain. You directly copied and pasted the thing that the other person said (the quote from the article, then AKA - Keith Olbermann fans). It looked like it was a part of your post. The [AKA - Keith Olbermann fans] should probably have been in quotes, or something, to show that it wasn't you who said that.

As I stated, I didn't look at exactly who you were replying to because it looked like it was a part of your post, in which the only thing in quotes was something that I knew was from the article. As I also said, sorry about that. I made a mistake.

Sorry for calling you disingenuous, as I thought you did it on purpose. You said it was a mistake, so it's no big deal. Sorry if my 2nd post seemed like I was being a punk. I really wasn't trying to be.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 23, 2012 5:58:52 PM PST
I think something like "winning the election while running on the Republican ticket" is an action that signifies the truth in saying someone is a Republican. Otherwise, what does the term mean? What you want it to?

Repluican is someone who holds a majority of Republican values. Strom Thurmond won while running on the Democratic ticket, but he wasn't a Democrat, as he held Republican views.

I think people who were mean to Jen Hepler are jerks.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 23, 2012 6:16:53 PM PST
Agreed.

In California, Washington, Oregon, Vermont, Maine, etc, Bill Clinton could pay to have his name on the ballot as a republican (or by petition), and Democrats would vote him into office, regardless of what he wanted put by his name. That would not make him a Republican.

I think people are mean to anyone are jerks (meaning everyone in this situation).

He ran, and won, the DEMOCRATIC ticket for president. He is a Democrat. Schwarzenegger ran, and won, the REPUBLICAN ticket for governor. He is a Republican.

Whether or not he's Republican enough for your tastes does not make that any less true.

"Obama can say he is a bird, but that doesn't make it true."

And you can say that Schwarzenegger is not a Republican, but that doesn't make it true. You simply cannot be reasoned with, it seems.

This exchange is over.

I really don't think there's a significant difference between democrats and republicans, so this argument is silly.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 23, 2012 6:51:49 PM PST
Agreed.

This is one of several reasons I do not vote.
