This is a rare evening post but I felt so compelled to write and you’ll soon see why.

I don’t think it’s any great secret that I prefer MSNBC. I watch in the evening and I listen on XM while in the car. Today, I was listening to Martin Bashir. Earlier today, a report surfaced that Representative Ryan allegedly nicknamed Governor Romney, “stench.”

I’m not going to address that as, frankly, I don’t care. That’s not an issue that concerns me. Whatever Representative Ryan calls Governor Romney in private is of no concern of mine. I prefer real news.

During a segment on Mr. Bashir’s program, he kept referring to Governor Romney as “The Stench” and kept trying to get the guests to refer to Governor Romney as “The Stench.” Thankfully, none of them took the bait.

I don’t care what you think of someone as a person or what you think of their politics, common courtesy, decency and respect mandates you don’t stoop to such a level to calling a nominee for the President of the United States a derogatory nickname. It’s uncalled for, it’s unprofessional and it’sĀ unbecomingĀ of a person in Mr. Bashir’s position.

We can, and will, disagree. Debates will be heated as we discuss important issues. But, please, let’s have some decency and some mutual respect.
