I have finally had it tonight. For a number of months I have seen the venom fly towards Democratic candidates, Members of Congress and each other. For months I have been trying to overlook the extreme behavior and save my fire for Republicans (the real enemies), but tonight I’m pulling the plug. I have had enough of the hit diaries and posts that fly when the author’s own candidates are not doing well. I am tired of the rants when things do not go our way in Washington. Sure, I am frustrated, too. But people have been frustrated with Congress for over 200 years. I’m not saying that Congressional leadership has not let us down, but it does not give us license to use epithets at will. Sometimes I even think there are people who hope we lose next year just to prove their point. I do remember for a fact that some hoped we would not win the Virginia Senate so they can blame Reid and Pelosi for the loss.
It’s your right, but I am going to exercise my right and move along. There are plenty of other blogs from which to get my information. It’s been a great ride and my thanks to many of those I have met and coversed with. I’ll leave the door open for a return, so it is by no means farewell.
