Part of the cause of heated discussion of the direction of national politics is....

Let us face it: we like to hear those who agree with us also entertain us and put our closely held beliefs into terms we dare not express publicly.  Just as we react to negative political ads, we also like those who reflect our deepest thoughts in screaming technicolored words.  Like Pogo, we have met the enemy and it is us. The national debate can be cooled if we want it to be cooled.  Flame throwing talk show personalities can become passe instead of vogue if we want it to happen by tuning them out ?   Will politicians have the courage to focus on facts and problem solving instead of demagogic  sloganeering?
