Still working on the big blog post I mentioned on Monday…

…but I just had to post a link to this article by Mark Thompson. An excerpt:

“The ‘debate over debate’ that has arisen in the wake of the tragic assassination attempt of Congresswoman Giffords in Arizona on Saturday, which left 6 dead, including a 9 year old girl, a federal judge, and a bride-to-be has been, and sadly continues to be, perhaps the most childish and depressing debate I’ve seen in my nearly four years as a blogger. The victims, rather than being remembered and honored, are being used as cudgels and footballs to prove a point about how the other teams are more evil than one’s own team.”

I don’t know if “post-partisanship” is an achievable goal, but if it is, that article describes how you could achieve it.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
