Diversity of opinion is a beautiful thing when it's happening. I value the breadth of opinion of the writers and commenters on this blog. We have our progressives out there, though their voices are often drowned out by the number, frequency, and vehemence of libertarian/conservative posts.
I didn't expect the blog to become this contemptuous; but then I never expected the Obama Administration to be this deserving of contempt. I didn't vote for Obama, but I didn't loathe him like I loathed McCain either. I honestly believed he might govern as a "post-racial" centrist, and I even believed some of the stuff he said about ethics and transparency in government. From my perspective, he's turned out to be far worse than I ever could have imagined.
Please come back, progressives. I really want to know what you're thinking. Are you horrified by the anti-Obama sentiment on this blog, or are you losing your faith in Obama? I suspect a combination of the two.
