    You only think he's acting on his conscience because he happens to agree with you, and in your self-righteous little world, you equate that with the truth.

    whoops - you missed. Try again. But I understand that people with a conscience appear 'self-righteous' to you. Especially if they act on it.

    No they didn’t, if that makes you feel better about being lied to, go with it.

    Rather, it's the people who are self-righteous who appear to be self-righteous, although they are often blind to their own hypocrisy.

    The facts, as they were laid out in the Mueller report, would show the MSM did a pretty good job of delivering the facts.

    Be careful not confuse cable based hour long political commentary programming for 'reporting the news' and that goes on both sides of the isle.

    Circular definitions do not an argument make

    It's actually not a circular definition.

    No they didn’t, but if that delusion helps you hold onto your dream, go with it.

    Its not any sort of definition at all really - is it? Just another attempt to slap a denigrating label on people you don't agree with. But it fails in that it simply isn't true.

    But thanks for making my point - the point being that all to often people that act on their conscience are seen as self-righteous in your eyes, especially if that action points to something you yourself are doing that is wrong, or points out that someone you support is doing something wrong.

    Which means you do not acknowledge or perhaps even recognize the difference between righteousness and self-righteousness.
