I think DU members who favor spousal abuse should go to a different site.

We should stop tolerating spousal abuse. It's not what Democrats do.

I'm just sitting here watching a Mariners game when I noticed a slight vibration characteristic of umbrage being taken and I said to myself I bet Manny has a new post up advocating motherhood or lobster rolls or some such and I logged on and there it was and pretty much the 1st reply was leaking umbrage. Or maybe it was the 2nd.

Manny's response to Logical is a giveaway, since demands for proof that DU'ers "support Putin" is usually met with the insinuation that the person asking for proof ALSO "supports Putin."

78. Oh, good. Now Manny is telling us that those who post threads about protecting women's

right to choose are just being silly. The implication being, "who on DU would ever argue against a woman's right to choose?"

I guess Manny missed all those discussions where DUers argued against womens' rights to abortions.

Or the Administration's response that DUers were welcomed to argue against womens' rights to abortions as long as they were polite about it.

But, see, Manny gets annoyed when it is discussed here. Because the whole discussion is something he finds silly. And it must, at all costs, be all about Manny.

Shall we begin the countdown till Manny posts his thread backtracking on this thread?



ETA the thread Manny is all bunched up about is this one: http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=4703887

See how that thread doesn't mention Manny or Manny concerns at all? Handpuppet should know that isn't allowed here.
