Okay, weird Washington Post glitch (or error on my part). My comment at 1:39 pm was meant to appear on the item about the Justice Department announcements -- which indeed is filled with angry, bitter comments that inspired my reply. It doesn't go here.

Dear chorus of trolls who reflexively sneer and jeer at every well-qualified Obama nominee and every statement, however benign, made by the president-elect:

You lost. Your postings on the Washington Post site seem destined to ensure that you will continue to lose. You are collectively presenting the most unflattering, tacky image of the remaining right wing that could be imagined. The concepts of outreach, open-mindedness, fairness, or an interest in our nation's shared prospects under a new administration, all seem to have eluded you. You are trapped in a mental straitjacket of your own construction.

See you in the rearview mirror. Bitterness and willful ignorance are no way out of your wilderness.
