    If you consider a matter of fact news story to be a polemic just because it was published in a right-leaning newspaper, I guess you never would.

    I don't feel we (read: I) do, Joebar clearly used this to point out how grieving her remarks were. It wasnt used in a racist way.

    personal attack is a personal attack. clairegirl's remarks are disciplined, but someone of the opposing side's persuasion may call the peerson white trash? no chastisement there?

    double standard.

    Thanks for clarifying. We can use racist remarks as long the intent is not racist. The statement I referred to before, does not have much context to support your interpretation, unless of course you count the religously insensitive context at the beginning.

    Too bad the President didn't realize it sooner. The world won't show up with the current Administration in power.

    Perhaps you should reconsider your vote given this statement.

    He wasnt attacking her, he was holding up an imaginary mirror.

    Like in the following situation:
    A: you are an *****
    B: how you you feel if I call you an *****?

    B wasnt calling A an *****. Joebar could have worded it a lot better but I don't read it as a personal attack.

    don't twist my words, you can't use racist remark. The only exeption is when you discuss rasism and you use it as an example, and even then I urge you to use moderation.

    When did personal attacks become the issue? The issue was racial statements, of which clairegirl did not direct hers at anyone personally.

    OK, I'll reconsider for a moment ...

    Lighten up. I was trying to bring a little levity to the party.

    I reconsidered, still voting as I was at the beginning. Sorry.

    I'm not trying to twist your words, I said pretty much what you reiterated.

    You can use racist remarks along as the intent is not racist.

    When used as an example the intent is not racist.

    OK, maybe I wasn't clear enough. Does it make more sense now?

    what was said was said - on both sides of the matter. leave it at that. whether or not you, me or anyone else condemns or condones what was said, the point was to make sure quarrels such as this one is handled in an unbiased.
    right here and right now, you say? you demand that, do you? whoa, stop the press!
    I simply would like to see both sides' views handled fairly, that's all.
