Default Re: Rave On (Robert Wright & Ann Althouse)

Actually, she might be totally aware of this fact, and she's just embracing her right-wing tribalism with both arms.
Indeed! Right after the violent expressions defended to the absolute hilt by Ann Althouse, of the right during the health care town halls, Ann said that that kind of speech enlivens and spices up debate. So now, what does she do? Crawls into a hole and proclaims (deserved, must say) victimhood just like she accused the Democrats of doing. Of course, she is 100% correct to point out the hypocrisy of the Democrats hoisting hateful signs. No argument at all there. But where in the hell is the defense of free speech? Her points only and I mean ONLY have to do with hypocrisy. No celebration of free speech here, move along.
