    Pleasantly surprised to see a Cornell prof take a reasonable stand. Didn't know Ithaca had any 'non-progressive leftists'. Glad they do!!!

    I'd never seen such incredible animosity against a President until Bush…. coming from a lot of academics who believed that wearing T-shirts that insulted the President was simply OK because 'surely" everyone else agreed.

    I am certainly not a 'follower' of Obama, but criticizing his policies and socilist agenda is not the same as personally attacking him…

    What 2470144 said.

    Demonization like this reduces us all. I disagreed with Bush. I didn't hate him. (But to be fair, I also didn't speak up often enough when people on the left did these kinda things, just like not enough people on the right speak up now.) It is a partisan world, at least here on the internet. (I'm of the opinion that most Americans believe partisan bloggers & protesters right and left are nutcases who ought to get a life, in the first place, and that things like this only further cement that nutcase part).

    Like the rumors folks are spreading about the Palin & Obama families, (& others, of course) it's lowest common denominator stuff that is more about hurting people personally than it is about issue advocacy.

    Anyone who supports these pix while disparaging those (or vise versa) is a hypocrite. Wrong is wrong, period.

    There is little doubt that certain people who identify with the repuiblic party have said and done things that are repugnant or childish. The problem it that the progressive left seems comfotable embracing repugnant and childish behavior directed at Republicans. Vanity Fairs portrayal of Bush as the Joker. The Atlantic's doctored photos of John MCCain and the hatchet job of Sarah Palin by Us Magazine readily come to mind.

    Rudeness and bad manners seem to run through the core of the progressive Democrats while mainstream Republicans appear better mannered.
