Dancing? In This Economy? How Dare These Celebrities and Politicians Dance!

What ever are we going to do with all these dancing people?

How dare they dance? How dare they sing? Celebrities and politicians, this happy? What is this? The dark ages? For those who don't understand this sarcasm, let me explain: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was in a video in college dancing like (essentially) the members of the Breakfast Club, and the GOP tried to mock her for it.

How Bad Is the Trolling Problem on the GOP’s Suggestion Site? Not as Bad as You Think.

Two days ago, the GOP rolled out a social voting website called "America Speaking Out," which allows users to upvote and downvote policy suggestions in a number of different categories, like "Fiscal Accountability," "American Values," and "National Security." Like clockwork, within a day, the site became an Internet laughingstock, as bloggers and reporters, including Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank, excavated the site for the absurdest suggestions they could find and concluded it was riddled with crazy people and trolls presenting fake, inflammatory opinions. Our sister site, Mediaite -- which dug up plenty of gems in this vein -- concluded that "it appears the Republicans in the House were a little too optimistic about the kind of discourse one finds on the internet."

I'm no GOP apologist -- I've turned a critical eye towards other GOP web operations in the past, and I'm not thrilled to hear that America Speaking Out is being funded with taxpayer dollars -- but after looking at a sample of 100 ideas submitted on America Speaking Out, it is my contention that the site is actually working a lot better than its critics are giving it credit for. By my count, a strong majority of the suggestions drawing the most user interest are, whether or not one agrees with them, good faith, sincere proposals.

What, then, accounts for the snark towards the site? If you want to go through the raw feed of proposals, before they've been voted up and down, you'd better strap on your trollerskates.
