This guy Mikelx seems like a decent sort of a fellow, though warped politically. I think if a Leftist guy or gal shows up here talking in a relatively civil tone, without trolling, we should act hospitably toward him or her.
I am, however, always amazed when people like him say "Bush has to malign Kerry because he cannot run on his record!" and then when you ask them to elaborate, all they can do is malign Bush. Some Bush voters will vote Bush because he ain't Kerry. Some Kerry voters will vote Kerry because he ain't Bush. Why do the Left spend so much time saying the former is lame when they practice the latter?
