Proud to be partisan
I did a post on being partisan at the DetNews in response to a commenter. For those of you who don't want to click over, here's the money graf.
Is that partisan? You bet. So is promoting prohibition, or the war, or any idea. So what? The word is thrown around like an insult these days, particularly by conservatives against the liberals, when they can't come up with a factual counterargument. It's become little more than a polite way to say "moonbat." But being partisan is only wrong when you use power to advance your platform at the expense of the truth and of the common good. Last I looked, my side is not the one in power. My conscience is clear.I mean really, what's wrong with fervently believing in a cause?
