I've been trying lately to have a discussion with a left-leaning blogger who thinks they are a moderate. I've asked pointed questions and gotten the run-around. They either ignore my questions entirely or answer the questions they want to answer. (But not mine.)
It's sort of akin to going to the Doctor after hitting yourself on the forehead repeatedly with a hammer saying, "Doc, it hurts when I do this" and having him say, "Then don't do that."
I'm laying my hammer down now.
