Demonization and politics in the Silly Season

We're reaching the peak of Silly Season, where even the normally most level-headed folks start to lose it when their partisan emotional buttons get pushed. I'm reading quite a few vulgarities out there and everyone is very into demonizing their opposition.

Take a deep breath people. Go grab a taco or empanada -- perhaps a Texas microbrew as well -- and relax a little. Opposition != enemy. To misquote Elvis, a little less demonization, a little more compassion.

Since this is a blog mainly focused on the gubernatorial race, tomorrow I'll post 5 reasons why Democrats can like Rick Perry and 5 reasons why Republicans can like Bill White.
