Adversarial Politics – or Haters gonna hate

American politics seems to have become pretty adversarial these days.  The amount of barely veiled hate and dislike sloshing around makes me wonder where and how it all started.  One thing seems certain – it turns into a zero-sum game.  Possibly the two party nature of things blocks any compromise and if any looks like happening the party radicals queue up to scupper it.  Any thoughts from the other side of the Atlantic?

    A comment from the same side of the Atlantic. It turned long enough that I made it a post in my own blog. Sorry for the self promotion.
