Okay, I believe I’ve just about had enough. Of what, you ask?
1. Kanye West ridiculousness
2. Rep. Joe Wilson ridiculousness
3. Serena Williams ridiculousness
4. The ridiculousness of everybody who made/carried a sign saying “Bury Obamacare with Kennedy.” (See story here.)
I do not care what the people listed above think about Taylor Swift, President Obama, Kim Clijsters/inept line judge, or Ted Kennedy. In each of these instances, they were inexcusably rude.
Good Lord, we are going to need to step it up in the civility department. Where are the mature adults who know how to disagree with someone without lapsing into totalitarian regimes of rudeness? Exactly when did we lose the art of civil discourse?
I just feel the need to bang this drum yet again- JUST BECAUSE you disagree with someone (even vehemently) DOES NOT MEAN you need to berate them as sub-human fecal matter. Mmmk?
