    :eusa_boohoo:

    What you continue to overlook is that everyone knows what Sarah Palin is and they have since McCain disagreed with her hatred in that townhall.

    She is a dumb tool.

    Guilty conscience? You guys remind me of the poor defense attorney tasked with defending the indefensible. It is not a specific single thing, it is an atmosphere of anti-government and anti Obama that is the cause of so much renewed violence and hatred of government. You libertarians are even worse than conservatives when it comes to this nonsense. You live in a fantasyland in which because you are doing OK everything is fine with the world - with no consideration of the whys or the structure that supports you.

    "As the president said in Tucson, we lack not just civil discourse, but honest discourse. Much of last week’s televised bloviation was dishonest, dedicated to the pious, feel-good sentiment that both sides are equally culpable for the rage of the past two years. To construct this false equivalency, every left-leaning Web site and Democratic politician’s record was dutifully culled for incendiary invective. If that’s the standard, then both sides are equally at fault — rhetoric can indeed be as violent on the left as on the right.

    But that sidesteps the issue. This isn’t about angry blog posts or verbal fisticuffs. Since Obama’s ascension, we’ve seen repeated incidents of political violence. Just a short list would include the 2009 killing of three Pittsburgh police officers by a neo-Nazi Obama-hater; last year’s murder-suicide kamikaze attack on an I.R.S. office in Austin, Tex.; and the California police shootout with an assailant plotting to attack an obscure liberal foundation obsessively vilified by Beck." http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/16/opinion/16rich.html?_r=1&scp=1&sq=frank rich&st=Search

    "The anti-tax arguments of conservatives and libertarians also rely heavily on denying the connection between the people and their government. They do not want us to see public money as “our” money being spent for “our” benefit. Grover Norquist, for instance, rankles when people refer to the government as “we.” When the interviewer Terry Gross pointed out to him that “The Bush tax cuts would cost us about $1.1 trillion over the next 10 years, and we're going to be hundreds of billions of dollars in debt.” He responded by saying: “Well, there's a very interesting use of the word 'we.' Every time you use the word 'we,' you meant the government, and I tend to use the word 'we' to mean the American people and to speak of the government as the government.” " http://www.governmentisgood.com/articles.php?aid=17&p=7

    "That is why they equate Sean Hannity with Keith Olbermann. That is why most celebrate an ever loosening of gun control laws; that is why they act as if &#8220;entitlement&#8221; programs are socialistic; that is why they campaign militantly against financial and corporate regulation in the name of a pure market that has never existed anywhere; that is why they speak in the name of a single, bellicose God for all Americans rather than a society of deep pluralism; that is why they resist unemployment insurance for the lower middle class; and that is why they push the filibuster envelope to the most extreme degree in the history of the country." <a href="http://contemporarycondition.blogspot.com/2011/01/radical-right-extreme-right-and.html">Read article here.</a>

    Barack Obama has survived a multi-year firestorm of anti-Obama media attacks on him. Why? Because he has the strength and brains and character to withstand it.

    Sarah Palin is going down in flames in the same sort of firestorm from the anti-Palin media. Why? Because she doesn't have the strength and brains and character to withstand it.

    Only the strong survive and no one is getting a pass. Quit whining about it.

    What you continue to overlook is that everyone in the country has seen and recognized the lies perpetrated by the media about this tragedy. Instead of focusing on the victims, they created millions more 'victims' by lying about a tragedy for political point scoring. They fooled no one.... except those who are incapable of seeing anything other than their own partisan bullshit.

    I am surprised that you are one of those people, Sarah. It isn't about Palin. It's about the bullshit and lies from the MSM. Do you find it acceptable for the media to keep repeating those lies? Do you even know they are lies?

    Just admit it.

    This whole thread was an excuse so you could use the word "Exculpatory"

    Thinking liberals and lefties agree with you, incidently.

    The source of the vitriol is BIPARTISAN.

    I know you cannot admit that we agree with you, but really, that's not our problem, that's your problem.

    lol ...

    It's certainly bipartisan but you will have no luck getting to the OP to own up to anything.

    However, interestingly enough depending on how much stock you put in polls about half the country assigns some blame to the political and pundit rhetoric for the Arizona shooting.

    It's no wonder the Malkin's of the world are losing their Cheerios over this.

    It is the dishonesty contained within the MSM that makes it partisan. Own it. It is your side. Less than an hour after the shooting, the NYT was running with it being a 'right wing extremist'. Less than an hour! Jack shit about the victims, absolutely no facts, just their stupid 'speculation' masquerading as fact. And not one of our board's intelligent liberals has the balls to call out the liberal media for it. Not one.

    This is not a bipartisan shitpile. This one is down to the liberals. Your media. Hold them to a higher standard.

    And... for the record, I would absolutely be calling out the right wing media had they started this shitpile. But they didn't.

    Claiming the left did not and continues to attack Palin claiming she was responsible is a lie. We have all the major Networks to prove it. We have numerous Democratic Congresspeople to prove it. We have a petition started to charge her with a crime to prove it. We have the GLARING fact that in 2004 and 2009 Democrats used the EXACT same bullseyes on Republicans they were targeting and not a peep from the Media or the left over it to prove it.

    Bipartisan my ass. As for the claim half of the population thinks Palin is guilty, you may want to rethink that claim.
