Pot calling the kettle black

In the Other Voices of Saturday, Sept. 29, “Being realistic rather than moralistic,” the author uses his column to lambast conservatives with hateful rhetoric and tries to come across as chaste and decent.

Yet he states, “People who call members of the other party names while professing to be chaste and decent are simply the lowest of the low.” Is the pot calling the kettle black? Hmmmm.

It is columns and letters to the editor like this that cause a wedge to be driven between people and parties. It lacks civility and is based on emotions rather than on facts. Who is “spewing hatred”?

And to state, “People who want to educate themselves should take a look at the political cartoons and letters to the editor.” Wow! I think I’ll just delve into getting the facts to educate myself for voting on issues and politicians.
