I'm not sure when I first noticed this, but I've found that the amount of annoyance a person feels is in direct proportion to how far right they sit on the political spectrum. Fundamentalists tend to be hypersensitive to any form of annoyance, where progressives seem to expect it and therefore live with it. This tends to be magnified online, I would guess due to the anonymity of message boards and forums. This is not to say that progressives do not get annoyed, but the annoyance does not tend to turn violent in nature. Political forums are by far the worst, and I have actually been afraid for my family's safety at times when confronted about my aversion to our esteemed leaders. On the other hand I have read posts that threatened Clinton with physical harm for getting a blowjob. My annoyance at that is more at having to deal with such puerile knobs on a daily basis. If they want to shriek and wail after all these years about a Presidential BJ, I guess that says more about them than me.
