It depends on one's definitions of civility and partisanship.
I have a feeling that Brazile's definition of civility means agreeing with her, much like the Democrat's definition of compromise is totally caving.
To me civility means not going after the person, but going after the ideas. To me, also, civility is not always required. I will be civil if the person is being civil with me. That does not mean I won't go after behavior that is repugnant. I will always call people on that--and expect to be called on it myself when I cross the line.
I won't call people who are being civil with me an ass. I will point out something they did that would earn them the title. I will call people being uncivil with me an ass.
I am a partisan. I see nothing wrong with that. The Republican Party is deeply flawed. The Democrat Party is dangerous to the Republic. I will try to fix the Republican Party from the inside and try to put them in power. This is how the progressives did it. They took over the Democrat party and then put it into power. Liberty-lovers should do the same thing with the Republicans.
So before you call for civility and denounce partisanship, be sure to define your terms.
