    Man I watched NBC last night and i sure didn't see any civility coming from the Left/Democrats. I hear all this "Civility" preaching from the Left/Democrats but i sure haven't seen them living up to their preaching so far. I also visited the HuffPo the last couple of days and i definitely didn't see any civility coming from the Left/Democrats there either. The one thing that disturbed me the most about the HuffPo was how they routinely attacked the children of politicians they disagreed with. They did this like it was the norm at HuffPo and there was nothing wrong with it. I don't visit the HuffPo very often so i wouldn't know for sure but it looks like that it is the norm over there.

    In my opinion NBC & HuffPo are the ultimate in bizarre wingy hate mongering. Conservatives can't hold a candle to them on that. I mean calling someone "The Worst Person in the World?" Can't get much more wingy and hateful than that in my opinion. The NY Times has also slid off into that Left/Democrat hate-world. Some of their Democrats seem to have completely lost it at this point. So is this Left/Democrat "Civility" preaching just a game and a way for them to gain something politically out of the Arizona tragedy,or is it for real? I'll let you decide that for yourself. So far i haven't seen the Left/Democrats living up to their own preaching so i'm very skeptical. I don't think the Left/Democrats really want civility at all. I think it's just a game. They just don't gain enough by being civil. That's how i see it anyway.

    I think TM has been living up to it.

    Not so much anyone else on the left.

    Most of the time, (not all) its the double standard on the left..
    Quick to cast the first stone, but they themselves never do wrong?

    We all know we all do wrong things sometimes.

    Seriously,Conservatives can't hold a candle to the wingy hateful Left/Democrats i see on NBC,HuffPo,and the NY Times. I gave em a shot these last couple of days and i did not see any civility coming from the Left/Democrats. In fact i only saw the exact opposite. One i thing i found especially disturbing was that these wingers have a real nasty habit of attacking the children of politicians they disagree with. They are especially vicious in this regard. Why attack the children? That just seems so low. So far i'm just not seeing that "Civility" from the Left/Democrats.

    Honestly,i don't see the Left/Democrats gaining anything with civil discourse. They seem to really get off on that "Worst Person in the World" stuff. I say call their bluff though. Lets have civility.

    Get off the children dude. The right attacks children just as much as the left. Also, you will never see the civility most likely.

    "Civility" to the Left just means "don't attack my ideology"...
