Hate is not a family value

but it apparently is a Democratic Underground one -- against President Bush and any one who doesn't hate Bush as much as they.

Seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong bicyled with President Bush yesterday in Crawford. It doesn't appear that Lance beat Bush to a pulp while screaming anti-war slogans; ergo, the DUers have decided that Lance is not fit to live and his efforts at cancer research are to be boycotted.

See the totally sick, twisted, often vulgar, hate-filled results here, here, and here.

N.B.: There are few DUers who find the visceral reaction shameful, but they are the definite and distinct minority.

Y'know, this kind of blind hatred driven by something as trivial as partisan politics can't be commented upon and have it done justice. It is something that merely has to be experienced first-hand.

Sad, truly sad. What miserable lives those folks must lead when their partisanship trumps every other human value.
