If you can't be polite...
I've deleted three knitblogs from my blogroll because of the viciousness of their political posts, coincidentally they were all Democrats. Happily I've found others that are capable of holding a civil conversation even with people they disagree with.
I strongly object to statements on knitblogs about stabbing Republicans with size 1 dpns, claims that anyone who didn't vote Democrat is mentally subnormal, and the violent hatred of all opposing viewpoints. I don't want to be anywhere near that kind of attitude. I'm not the only one either, thankfully. As I said earlier, can we please stop demonising the Republicans and Democrats now?
Since this has been a somewhat political post, in the interests of balance here is a picture of Quantum (grey) and Tangle (orange), our two cats (his full name is Tangle Mint. Quantum entanglement, it's a physics joke).
They were grooming each other. Shortly after this picture, Tangle bit Quantum and they started fighting, but it was nice while it lasted. They get on very well.
