As I read all the sniping and snarking and bitchslapping among the ex-Deaniac bloggers at each others' throats, I'm mindful of one thing: If things had gone their way, these people would be running the country now. Yow.
: I keep reading more comments on the various ex-Deaniacs' blogs and I'll add this: No wonder they lost Iowa. No wonder Dean screamed.
Politeness actually does help groups of people work together effectively.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Zephyr responds -- politely -- to her critics.
