I have noticed that you can experience this by just mentioning a few names in the presence of liberals. Names like Palin, Bush, and Cheney will create a reaction of abject hatred from liberals. I don't understand why anyone wants to hate so much. It must make for a miserable life. It also makes it impossible to have an intelligent conversation with liberals. Their hatred clouds their minds to the point they can't conduct a conversation about the differences in their viewpoints with those they don't agree with. Therefore, I don't bother and suggest you don't either. After all, you can't change a closed mind.
