Comment Re:Can't read my posts either. Strange obsession (Score 1) 496

I've noticed it's the other way around: When liberals say something crappy, we're supposed to take it in the spirit, not the letter. But when conservatives say the same crappy thing, we're supposed to take it as the letter, not the spirit. Oh, and when a liberal says something over the top, it's just hyperbole, but when a conservative says the same thing, it's literal.

If conservatives are insisting that their words be taken at face value, maybe it's because they're tired of liberals twisting 'em like this.

And the sexism/racism seems to be almost exclusively the province of the SJWs, and they're very public about it, but woe unto anyone else saying the same things.

Heads we win, Tails you lose.

I think you're being disingenuous. We not only don't want someone picked on the basis of their skin color, we don't want "liberal" justices, and we're not going to fall for this bait-and-switch.

And did a quick skim through his Wikipedia entry and nope, I don't want Merrick Garland either, I don't care if he's black, white, green, or plaid. Go find someone who judges per the Constitution, not from the regulatory POV.

It's not so much "the media", but that readers solicitously enjoy hearing about pompous rich farts being waffled by their wayward robot toys.

It reminds me of McDonald's failed attempts at selling health-food: nobody wants it; buyers want Big Macs and fries.

(And no, I don't mean this kind of Big Mac)
