Unreal


"We’re on Sarah Palin’s targeted list. But the thing is the way that she has it depicted has the crosshairs of a gunsight over our district. People who do that, they’ve got to realize there’s consequences to that action." - Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ)
Is Sarah Plain and Dumb directly responsible?
Not really.
Did she and fellow loon Glenn help fan the flames with their angry and violent rhetoric?
You betcha.
Not exactly sure how she manages to sleep at night from here on out....

Is it too much to hope that they will learn something from this?

I wonder the very same thing, Debra. And I'm just floored by the calendar of events clipping. Is it real or something someone photoshopped? People have become so unpredictable (or is it predictably irrational?) that I almost expect groups to begin advertising opportunities like that.

It's not a photoshop and sadly very real.

When I heard about this I was so mad. When did saying something like that ever become okay?!? I agree with Debra, I hope we learn something from this.

On a positive note....husband is smiling because now he is sure she will never be president. I wish I shared his optimism.

Cheers!

i am stunned at the escalation of irresponsible speech, in all quarters, not just politics. some say words don't hurt. i say, bullshit. words carry intent, direction, emotional content, and repercussions.
how does she sleep at night? she sleeps the sleep of the oblivious.

Sadly, this sort of diseased rhetoric has found a home north of the border:

"Long-gun registry turncoats: lock and load"

I'm afraid lack of sleep would require far more a conscience than one can find in her...
