"Obama cultists"

I'm a little tired of all of the insults against Obama fans. Please stop saying they're members of a "cult." It's childish and it only serves to push them away. We want a healthy debate, not a one-sided bashing. I'm seeing fewer and fewer Obama backers on MyDD these days and it's a bad sign for the community. And don't say that it's representative of the netroots unless you can back that up with evidence.

Besides, the Dean folks were pretty committed and probably better deserved to be called "cultists."

Besides, using the word "cult" in a derogatory way implies that you don't support First Amendment rights.
