    I have been surprised by the lack of civil political discourse in some of the threaded discussions in the blogs. I suspect it might reflect the sort of people we are (i.e., in American society). Here is the post if you are interested: http://euandus3.wordpress.com/2009/11/03/are-the-american-people-really-like-mr-smith/

    Your post suggests that you have see the same stuff.

    I thought the Comment Policy opposes “needless name calling” “sarcastic statements” and “personal attacks”. Then how do you explain these statements from the “Dummy of the Month” section?

    “That is plan dumb and this why Citizen Action and MPS School Board President Peter Blewett are awarded this shameful dishonor for the month of March.”

    “In his speech, Senator Jauch who is the most socalist State Senator in Wisconsin ”

    “Rep. Milroy acted like a arrogant, freshman cocky Democrat”

    These sure sound like name-calling, sarcastic comments and personal attacks to me.
