    Tempers are flying across the country, no doubt of that. At the same time, there seems to be an effort to flame those tempers from both sides. On the far right, there are those who seem to believe that there's a coming war and just want to 'get on with it.' On the left, faux outrage at the tea parties to cover concerns that this bloc is growing and really have messages that resonate with the independents and moderates of both political parties. So comes the continuing efforts to demonize them for the faux violence, since marginalizing failed. The far right is more than willing to use the faux to incite those that are seeing a lack of response from the politicians, this 'game' threatens to spin out of control. It's healthier to let people protest what they truly believe are policies that are dangerous and wrong, until they can vote. While the attempts to demonize are for political machinations, they may well lead to more problems.

    Earlier I posted Taranto's column that addresses some of the charges and to a degree the faux nature of some. Here is another that puts perspective on some other charges and counter charges. The lack of civility and the dangers that may lie ahead if changes aren't made. Lots of links to the antics of both sides:

    Well annie, all the simple minds and big government loving sheep that call the tea party 'racist' and kooks aern't interested in truth.

    Their world is they have the votes and if you oppose them there is something wrong with you, no matter what the opposition reasoning is.

    Then it's time to tell both political sides, Shut up and listen! By nature I'm not a doomsdayer, though there are times recently:

    I think Xen is right. It's about simple minds. It is easier to think someone 'hates' the 'black' guy than to honestly look at why people are angry. It's a bite size message.

    Of course it is.

    The left has been on this from day one, they did it to their own side, they called Hillary and Bill Clinton racist because she dared run against the annointed one, remember?
