Dean Esmay has called for people on the right to not behave like the Democratic Party and the Left by villifying Senator Kerry if he wins in November. I was going to tweak that a bit to something I could agree with, but Entropy Manor beat me to it:

I believe in the United States of America and its Constitution. I will regard the winner (as detemined by the Electoral College) of the November 2, 2004 Election as the next President of the United States. I will do so whether the winner is George W. Bush or John F. Kerry. When I am critical of the President’s policies, I will remember I am criticizing the policy and not the man. Furthermore, I will make my criticism constructive not antagonistic.

This is what I will do as well. I will also do all that I can to make any criticisms fact based, unlike, say, the pipeline in Afghanistan issue.

Unfortunately, it’s not just Democrats and the left who commit this error. There are as many on the right whose first reaction is hormonal or instinctual. They’re the burden we on the right must bear, and try to control.

I think that the Right has done a much better job of marginalizing the moonbats. When leading figures in the Senate are attending Farenheit 911 you clearly have an embrace rather than control. The links off the Kerry website (since purged) are another example of active association with the lunatics.
