As a progressive with some libertarian tendencies, I can respect people's political viewpoints, even if I disagree with them. It helps if the person has applied reason or at least some rational thought. Unfortunately, in today's political climate, Ann Coulter and many of her colleagues on the right - Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin leap to mind - stoke people's fears and paranoia, feed them misinformation, and appeal to their basest and increasingly violent instincts.

That said, Ann Coulter is simply vile. Odious.

Political discussions anywhere are tough these days. Other than with my wife, I personally have stopped having virtually any political discussion in any circumstance, unless it is more of a joking thing. I used to enjoy the debates, but now I find myself getting angry and making others angry if I'm involved in a political discussion. I've heard people tend to get more tolerant as they get older, but I've definitely been the opposite.

I wonder if anyone has done a study of political discourse and why, it seems, that these days it is very difficult to have a reasoned discussion on political matters. I'm sure there are a number of factors at play. Seems it would be an interesting sociological study for someone who knows how to do those types of things. (And it may have been done many times, I actually don't care enought to look.)

I always enjoyed Jack Germond's contributions to the McLaughlin Group. He always coughed so much, though, that I was in perpetual fear that he'd hack up a lung one day, right there on camera. He wrote a book that I've always wanted to read: Fat Man Fed Up: How American Politics Went Bad.

This is the gist, from Publisher's Weekly: "Tackling everything from empty campaign rituals and deceptive TV ads to misleading polls and shallow news coverage, rotund political pundit Germond (Fat Man in a Middle Seat) holds forth on political ills. Drawing on 50 years in Washington, he traces a pattern of decline in substance, civility and integrity among politicians and those who write about them, and spares no one, including voters."

This was in 2004. I wonder what he'd say now.
