Crybabies, every one of 'em! What's with this, anyway?
Aren't conservatives supposed to be tough guys? Aren't they always telling the people they cheat and beat, people all too often like the readers of this blog, to "just get over it"?
That may be their self-perpetuated self-image, just as they characterize "liberals" -- that is, those of us who believe in due process, fairness, common decency and the rule of law -- as sissies, or as Spiro T. Agnew famously put it, "an effete corps of impudent snobs."
