Will The Circle Be Unbroken?

So, we had eight years of ceaseless, irrational, vicious attacks on Clinton by the right. Then eight years of mindless defense of everything Bush did, no matter how patently absurd. Now we again have ceaseless, irrational, vicious attacks on Obama...starting--as with Clinton--before he even took office.

Query: will you be able to find it in your heart to give the next Republican president a fair shake?

(I mean, supposing it's not some complete moron...Sarah Palin or somesuch.)

Thing about this BS that's poured out of the right...basically since they lost in ' that it seems likely to drive a cycle. I'm so fed up with the irrational, tribal, divisive antics of the right that it takes a supreme effort of will to even listen to them anymore. I want to be non-partisan...and don't get me wrong: I've got only a modicum of love for the Dems...but the GOP is not making it what you'd call easy.

I'm so fed up with their crap that, to be honest, these days I feel myself click into the mode of disagreement before they even open their mouths. I already half-disagree with them before they've even said anything.

Needless to say, this is a dangerous situation to be in, epistemically speaking. Gotta figure out how to shake it...

I will judge him/her based on their past, their articulated thoughts on record on the issues, and remember what the writer Rex Stout said, via his famous fictional character:

"Skepticism is a good watchdog if you know when to take the leash off."The real problem is that as the Republicans become irrelevant, like the Whig party did on the issue of slavery, who will take their place?
