My Non-Fight with @EBischoff and Why We keep Losing to Democrats

So Eric Bischoff made a good comment on Twitter today which got featured on Twitchy. I went to his twitter page and saw he was making good comments on the Native Americans.

Absolutely correct. In an attempt to join the conversation (as I fancy myself as far more clever than I probably am,) I tweeted:
My point being that most of the democrats really do believe they are doing good and as Rush likes to point out, always want to be judged by their intentions. I'm also a big believer in the axiom "Never attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by stupidity." Democrats have arrogance and stupidity in spades. There certainly are malicious, power-hungry democrats (and I would at this point count Obama among them) but most lower ranking officials and low information voters are simply that: well-meaning but arrogant and stupid. Of course, this can't all be put into 140 characters.

Eric however took exception at even the hint of an excuse towards progressives and lashed out at me thusly:
Now after looking over Eric's general tweets, I think he and I see eye to eye on most issues. But the reactive nature of twitter and the "Us against Them" mentality has so permeated politics that now we can't even agree with each other correctly. Democrats have speech police, democrats have litmus tests and DEMOCRATS are the intolerant haters of the other side. If we react like them, we will never get anywhere as the media is already stacked against us. We have to take higher roads. They will revel in our in-fighting. That in-fighting has now given us John McCain and Mitt Romney.. two vanilla candidates that really wouldn't call out a progressive or say anything mean to the other side. (McCain however will rip his own side. We can see how that's turning out.)

We all know we will have minor disagreements about details. We can't get too bogged down on that or President Hillary will be laughing all the way to the White House.
