I dunno, Stephens' sounded very well put and actively introspective, evaluating not just what he means but why, instead of just repeating the same talking points directly from conservative media with fiercely blind ignorance of all else as has been so much of don's posting the past years.
but there still seems to be this consistent misunderstanding of discussions from the "right" where being so annoyingly stubborn elicits actual frustration, and that's mistakenly taken as "winning"
time and again, someone being angry enough to say "after all these evidences and all these examples you're still unwilling to consider my view then fuck you" is taken to mean, "well he said fuck you, or resorted to name calling, so I guess we're right! score one for team fuckforbrains"
it's very difficult to adjust to the retort to positive change in politics being reduced to little more than a bunch of grown "men" plugging their ears and sticking out their toungues slobbering about "trump wins nah nah, LOL!"
