People Can Disagree Without Being Disagreeable

Today, I am off to do more economic research, so, I might be absent for a few days. My plans are to visit a "new" art museum too. New for me as I have not been to this one and it is one I have wanted to visit for some time.

In the news recently was Senator Tom Coburn's comments about the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. He said something that needed to be said, that we can disagree with someone, and yet, that person can be a good person. I applaud Senator Coburn for having the wisdom to come out and say that. It is something that needs to be said in light of the behavior of some people towards members of Congress. We can disagree with each other without being disagreeable.

Stay tuned.

Frankly, I'm not sure he did it out of wisdom, but out of self preservation, trying to calm the wing-nuttery of his home state, who have been so stirred up by Faux Gnus. He's gonna have a tea-bag primary challenge and possible split electorate. Can you imagine a DemocratIC senator from Oklahoma? I sure hope it was wisdom, it's about time the Nopublicans started thinking of the country before the party...

While you off enjoying the art world take a look at this when you get a chance. There are those in the media that understand what has happened but don't understand why nothing has been done...or do they.
