Toddlers With Strawberry Ice Cream All Over Their Faces

Repeating myself, but sometimes I realize that the social norms of DC (political and journalistic DC) involve a discourse that is actually incomprehensible to outsiders and deeply complicated for participants. That treating obvious lies with politeness and respect, to actually pretend they are not lies, is quite psychologically harmful!

Complaints about supposed incivility often stem from the failure of the great unwashed to understand proper manners. Incivility is recognizing bullshit!
