    Almost Every single thread that says something about the politics of the "other side" can never stay on topic of what the OP is about.

    If a conservative posts about what a liberal did, we hear, "But BOOOOSH!" etc...

    If a liberal posts about what a conservative did, we hear "57 States" etc.........

    Why can't people just address the ISSUE, (for example, there are many) - be it male republicans soliciting young men on the internet, or male democrats tweeting their 'junk' to young women.


    It's OK to call out someone in your political party for doing something "wrong"-no political party has a pass on what is expected of them by being in the public eye.

    Is the issue of this OP about the nature of the drift or staying on topic? Get my drift?

    If I said that, "Janet Napilatano could pass as Rachel Maddows' mother."; would that be a correct representation of what the OP is saying?

    I understand your concern and sympathized with you. Yet many times making a reference to the other side provides context. Too often however the retort is "so are you"; a response which would embarass most second graders.

    This is why I am an Independent, political half-breed. Both parties are corrupt, as far as I'm concerned. When I see an issue, I don't give a damn if it's a conservative or liberal issue. I look at the issue and decide what I think about it. I don't have to ask my fellow partisians what I think about it... I don't have to read the party platform to find out what I think about it. I decide. I think for myself.

    I suspect that is what the OP was all about, thinking for oneself and discussing issues instead of degenerating into partisian poop parties.

    See there. That's EXACTLY what I was talking about. People 'discussing' politics with all the maturity of 4th grade recess.
