 Partisan Witch Hunt --political commentary, actions, articles, and links--
What's outstanding about the partisan rift in American politics is the tendency among conservatives to characterize attacks against the left as having a pure basis in moral justice while any scrutiny of their own actions is characterized as groundless and entirely political.
When the left opposes the right, conservatives find that their strength is not in putting forth their own merits, but in selling the misrepresentation that the opposition is without merit.
By shying away from the partisan rift Democrats allow Republicans to use its negative characterization to provide a smokescreen for their own self-serving and corrupt deeds and to disarm the left.
