The difference is...

In reply to: Makes as much sense as an elephant with a "We Hate Everybody

the donkey cartoon is true!

For a group of highly educated people (I think).....

In reply to: The difference is...

....you guys sure have trouble discerning the difference between fact and opinion.

I guess that explains why the original post wasn't trolling but anything critical of Bush is.

Collapse -
I think you miss the point of the cartoon...

In reply to: For a group of highly educated people (I think).....

it's not just that the donkey is wearing a "We hate Bush" t-shirt, it's that he is saying NOTHING.

A very apt description of the current state of the Dems.

As for trolling, much much more from your side of the fence than ours, so what's the big deal?

I didn't miss the point at all

In reply to: I think you miss the point of the cartoon...

But it is expressing an opinion, not stating a fact.

So was duckman

He said "The absolute TRUTH (prove me wrong)"

It is ya know Devil

Which part was not factual?

In reply to: I didn't miss the point at all

That many many Democrats hate Bush?

Or that they have nothing of substance to say?

Collapse -
Part two is most definitely not factual

In reply to: Which part was not factual?

As to part one, I'd have to see some poll results.

Collapse -
Poll results! That's pretty funny by itself.

In reply to: Part two is most definitely not factual

As for part two, I'd have to see a list. Or maybe some poll results.

Sorry. I just find this very amusing.

It's really very simple, Ed

In reply to: Poll results! That's pretty funny by itself.

Whether a group of people (Democrats, Republicans, the Irish or whoever) has anything to say is a matter of opinion. You have yours; I have mine. ''Democrats have nothing to say'' is an opinion and not a fact.

If you still don't understand that, well then we'll just go around in circles on this and I'll bow out.

Bear with me a little longer...

In reply to: It's really very simple, Ed

WHY do you think it is that people think the Democrats have nothihg to say, beyond Bush bashing? I've heard this even form Democrats. Why?

Don't you think they ought to address this issue?

Collapse -
Actually I do think they need to address the issue

In reply to: Bear with me a little longer...

Their message (in my opinion) has become less clear in the last few years. Making Howard Dean the DNC Chairman sent the wrong message (in my opinion).

Even if millions of people share that opinion though, it's still a perception and an opinion, and not a fact.

"Howard Dean is wearing a blue tie" is a fact.

"Howard Dean is ridiculous" is an opinion.

Collapse -
Whew! Good.

In reply to: Actually I do think they need to address the issue

They shouldn't address it. By all means let it slide.

Have you ever heard the saying "In politics, perception is reality"?

BTW it's only your opinion that "Howard Dean is ridiculous" is not fact.

(NT) (NT) LOL

In reply to: Actually I do think they need to address the issue

Oh, you said they should.

In reply to: Bear with me a little longer...

Darn! Well, not to worry. They won't.

I'm not sure they CAN.

The same can be said for your side:(

In reply to: For a group of highly educated people (I think).....

Most don't want to be bothered with the truth, only with what fits in with what they already think:( And THAT goes for both sides of the fence:(

Response

In reply to: Donkey = Democrat

''real'' donkeys don't talk, don't wear suits, t shirts,(unless their owners dress them up) and don't make political statements

So, What is the absolute truth?

Francis, the talking mule from the fifties could talk. It couldn't really talk but they had a guy do a voiceover as the mules lips moved.

LOL, I wonder how much vitriol I'd stir up.....
