At this late stage of the game, debate is no longer a civic virtue. Now it's carping, sniping from the sidelines, weaselly nit-picking, and -- yes -- unpatriotic. When you mouth those faux "just because I..." formulations that Democrat political hacks spew like spit takes in a Three Stooges Looney Tune, you reveal yourself to be not only unpatriotic, but a gullible fool, who unthinkingly spouts the most recent thing he hears.
Ah-yup. He's ticked.
