I have no limits!
Unfogged links to a particularly drama-queen-ish post by Buttrocket of Powertools fame:
>...but now some Democrats have sunk lower. They are hinting that John Roberts is a homosexual because he was once photographed--more than thirty years ago--wearing plaid pants. You think I'm making this up? Charmaine Yoest has the story. If you think that's contemptible, consider this: some on the Left have also suggested that Roberts' four year old son is "gay."
Throughout American history, until now, there have been limits. There have been depths beneath which Americans would not sink for the sake of partisan advantage. Even during the Civil War, when the Democrats were fighting to preserve slavery, limits were observed. Now, all civility is gone. There is no depth to which some Democrats will not sink. Hold your nose. Things are only going to get worse. With MoveOn and the Daily Dose dominating Democratic politics, all constraints are gone.
Good Lord, who on the left (I mean, the Left) is suggesting that Roberts's son is gay - or even "gay?" No one I read. It's impossible to tell if the kid is "gay," and it would be irresponsible to suggest otherwise. I hereby denounce those people on the left (I mean, the Left) who have suggested that Roberts's son is gay, or "gay," if any such people exist. Frankly I'm surprised that Buttrocket would even publicize these unfounded rumors about the child. What the heck was he thinking, spreading these rumors across the Internets? On his Blog of the Year? SHAME on him. Has he no decency? Are there no limits beneath which Buttrocket will not sink in his pursuit of partisan advantage?
