The need for real political discourse

I'm sure many of you are following the hate fest going on at the Disgruntled Chemist's Blog. What really makes me sad is that the Disgruntled Chemist gave an informed opinion on a blog, and then had his blog inundated with personal and cultural attacks. These conservatives had the chance to give great informed opinions that could have made for a real political discussion. Instead, they adopted the strategies of the conservative leadership and resorted to intimidation and insults. I urge any conservatives out there to stop with personal attacks and get back down the issues. Conservatives are in power now, but that won't last forever. The political pendulum always swings the other direction eventually. The more enemies you make now, the less friends you'll have later when liberals are in power again.
