    it's other libs on the board.  What a coincidence lol  As far as I'm concerned having libs feel raw is kind of an occupational hazard.  When you make your politics about moral rectitude and virtue, any one that questions or criticizes your politics is going to feel personal.  There's no way to tell you I think what I think without it being something you think sounds condescending and mean.  But as I often say, I'm not anymore insulting to you than you (as in libs) are to Trump supporters.   Best I can tell you is don't take it personally.

    P.S. I absolutely appreciate you airing your criticism, but I don't think it's coming from a particularly unbiased place.

You just turned this around to make your condescension our problem (we’re too sensitive and biased) and not yours. I mean, if that’s not condescending, what is? Also you imply that it's your content that generates this reaction. It's not, at least not for me. It is the style in which you convey that content.

You and I are probably going to disagree about whether or not I'm being unnecessarily condescending .  How did you think that would go?  I'm willing to hear this criticism publicly.  That hardly means I would or should  automatically agree with you.  And I'm not saying you're being too sensitive, but you're certainly biased.  I'll put it to you this way: I don't think people with very different political persuasions in the middle of an argument about high stakes subject matter make good objective judges of the character of the opposition.

And I'm going to repeat this.  I haven't been any more glib or condescending to you than I think you've been to Trump supporters.  It's not a title for tat issue.  It's an issue that in that case I imagine you feel like the attitude if superiority is appropriate due to the political realities.  Well... same here.

Finally I'm not trying to prove to you I'm not unnecessarily or gratuitously condescending.  You're entitled to your opinion.  I'm saying I disagree.  I think I'm obeying all requisite etiquette.
