You would have done a greater service to yourself by simply denouncing Barkin.
I have never seen DA denounce (on any level) anything said or done by a liberal. I see conservative posters do so often. People like him are the reason we are so divided as a nation, failing to admit their side says or does anything wrong, while refusing to acknowledge anything the other side does as being positive. It's very sad IMO.
I am starting to think he is a conservative troll trying to give his fellow conservatives some experience in debating with a typical obama supporting democrat (being a devil's advocate), or he's trying to push us a little so we become more informed. Or he's just an idiot liberal with a bunch of alters.
