This post was deleted for the following reason: this is an axegrindy HC post. I know it's election time and all, but it's too early for "your favorite candidate sucks" posts and if you have issues with the way other political posts have been handled, it would be better to take those to Metatalk or your own blog. -- jessamyn [more inside]

What's the line between axegrinding (this axegrinding
? or some kind of GodWin rule ? ) which caused the deletion of this post of mine
and showing the psycological troubles of bunch of indoctrinated kids that are just parrotting talking points ? It this better
and/or acceptable , because it clearly (?) shows a nascar redneck or because he makes fun of Michael Moore, therefore it must be "republitard" BUT it fits under "satire/comedy ?" I tolerate deletion with no problem, and may even accept that I was deemed brutal and deleted, but I would like to understand where the borderline could be, according to you guys.

"Hey, my monthly political hobbyhorse is recurring! C'mon guys, it's important!"
If we have to play with the "party" as metaphor, I throw the relentless proslytizers out before I bother with folks who call each other bad names.

What, exactly, do you mean when you say "axe-grinding". The term gets thrown around here a lot, maybe more then "strawman" these days.
