The drip, drip of revelations about the Bush/Cheney nightmare can become water torture at times.
I've watched a number of my blogmates at firedoglake become outraged today, as more is revealed about our abuse of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib.
Regulars making hot comments, people dredging up old spats and trying to gain points at the expense of others. The temptation, as with family violence, is to strike out at the nearest available target, someone nearby who has made you angry.
Unfortunately, that has us sniping at each other instead of focusing on the real problems.
There are guaranteed to be more revelations of scandal, corruption, incompetence, and deceit at the highest levels of government. It is our challenge to bring the temperature down and remain calm as these situations develop.
Let's stop the friendly fire. Hold your tempers. Cool it.
