BREAKING NEWS: Bramanti actually 'festering boil'

Ladies and gentlemen, I present reasoned, legitimate political discourse from our friends on the left. This one comes from Kathleen Lees:
Lincoln screwed up when he didn’t let the south secede from the union.
Yeah, you're right. He should've let the nation shatter and allowed slavery to continue. Good call.
The south was and remains the most primitive, ignorant and backward region in the country–an embarrasment to the rest of civilized America. Texas, populated by buffoons like you, is a festering boil on the ass of humanity.
So if Texas is the boil, does that make "civilized America" the ass?
So you’re going after bereaved mothers of Iraq war veterans. Your cruelty and ignorance must make you immune to any feeling of shame or pity. Your boy Bush (who,unlike Casey Sheehan, refused to fight for his country as a young man) has fixed it so the richest Americans don’t even have to pay tax, so why should Cindy Sheehan?
You might want to stick to the inflammatory wacko rhetoric, Kathleen. You're out of your depth when it comes to the facts. Take a look at these figures and you'll see that the top 1% of 1999 taxpayers (those would be "the richest Americans") paid 29% of the nation's income tax bill, and the top 10% paid 63% of all taxes.
Speaking of "performing" your duty, why isn’t your ass in Iraq instead of safe and cozy in Texas making up nasty lies about the family members of war dead????? You make me sick.
That's a tired, stupid argument, but I'll rebut it for about the 10,000th time. I root for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Does that mean I'm a hypocrite unless I strap on a gold helmet every Saturday and run out of the tunnel? Nope. Do you support curing cancer? I'm sure you do; we all do. Are you a cancer researcher? Nope, few of us are. Does that make you a hypocrite? No it doesn't. Are you against crime? Sure. Are you a cop, putting your life on the line, being shot at by bad guys? No, and you're not a hypocrite for doing another job. You get the idea. We're free to take principled stands on issues without being immersed in the front-line prosecution of those issues.

And now I present to you the right's idea of "reasoned discourse" (no comment by Bramanti - yet):

I condemn the guy; a scumbag is a scumbag.

This situation reminds me of a very similar incident that happened at my college maybe a year ago. Members of the Notre Dame Right to Life organization set up hundreds of crosses on the quad to symbolize the daily murder of children by abortion. Someone couldn't debate the issue on its merits, so he vandalized the display, breaking many of the crosses. He should be found and prosecuted just like this dirtbag in Crawford. As a Catholic, I don't take too kindly to folks desecrating the symbols of my faith.
