I have a lot of liberal friends (props to the balanced criticism, btw, sarrin), plus i go to Smith of all places, so i expect my head is gonna start hurting in about 5 minutes. I'm hardly about to become a scary conservative, but processing everything and making it all fit is gonna be quite a task. My door is closed because i can only deal with so much. I expect i'm gonna be doing a lot of bucking the tide of public opinion in the next week. I don't even wanna call it devil's advocacy, because i'm not necessarily saying "one could make the argument that such-and-such, but i'm not." Maybe i am, maybe i'm not. The point is that a lot of what people say is gonna make me twitch (as is true of me and the Left so much recently), even if i do actually agree with some (or even a lot) of what they're saying.
