I generally dislike end-zone celebrations after a touchdown. I can see some exuberance after a score, especially one to end a long drive, or on a play where several tackles were broken. In that case, go ahead- spike the ball.
I prefer guys like Barry Sanders or Steve Largent- pros who acted like they had been to the end zone a hundred times in their life. When they scored, they didn't taunt or do a dance. They handed the ball to the ref and trotted off the field.
Now that the Democrats have elected a President and re-elected a Democratic Congress, the gloves are off among leftward bloggers and pundits, revelling in the kind of infantile and mean-spirited name calling reserved those not used to winning. They not only have spiked the ball, but they're in the face of the other side.
It's hard to even read a left blog these days. Mostly, it's the followers and their comments, but sometimes the bloggers themselves. I've pretty well had it with anyone, left or right, who uses the terms, 'wingnut' (as though they could only be right-wing-nuts, and not left-wing-nuts), moonbat, righttard, lefttard, Paultard (or anything-tard, for that matter). You generally need not go more than two posts deep to see it. Shallow posts with ad hominem attacks and name calling, or even goofy pictures, rule the day.
There were many messages Obama put out, won support for, and was elected on. Apparently, his message of inclusive government was not one of them. It seems to have been ignored by the dyed-in-the-wool Democrats. It's too bad, because both Democrats and Republicans have something to offer. As a Libertarian, that's plain to see, because I share many things with each camp. Maybe that's what two party dominance has caused- a great 'my team's way or the highway' antipathy for the other side.
Obama's position is correct. I wouldn't mind seeing some display of it by his choir.
