Here is a glaring example of the difference between the left and the right, at least as currently constituted, and as proof of how totally given over to hatred the Republican party has become.

During the Democratic National Convention, USA Today asked Ann Coulter to write a column about it; and, likewise, they asked Michael Moore to write a column about the Republican National Convention.

Here is the opening of Michael Moore's first column for USA Today:
"Welcome, Republicans. You're proud Americans who love your country. In your own way, you want to make this country a better place. Whatever our differences, you should be commended for that."

Here, by way of contrast, is the opening of Ann Coulter's:

"Here at the Spawn of Satan convention in Boston, conservatives are deploying a series of covert signals to identify one another, much like gay men do. My allies are the ones wearing crosses or American flags. The people sporting shirts emblazoned with the "F-word" are my opponents. Also, as always, the pretty girls and cops are on my side, most of them barely able to conceal their eye-rolling. Democrats are constantly suing and slandering police as violent, fascist racists – with the exception of Boston's police, who'll be lauded as national heroes right up until the Democrats pack up and leave town on Friday, whereupon they'll revert to their natural state of being fascist, racist pigs."

Sort of says it all. And, amazingly the right-wingers insist that it is Michael Moore who is hateful.
