    In political speach?


    Will it remain a useful tool or will the people who try to use it lose votes and support?


    I think yes

    with all the rants on both sides about what it means nothing can convince the opposite side what you pretend they dont really believe.

    When the rubber meets the road NO ONE , neither side, will benifit in a political way for continuing to use such language.


    I really think this is going to end up being the case.


    It gave me some real hope when it occured to me.

    The people who want to shut Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh up now are the same ones who wanted to shut them up before Saturday.

    Americans don't blame violence on speech.

    Shut them up?

    Are you claiming the ONLY thing these people have to say is violent?

    We have instructed our folks here to double check all the imagery and press materials that they are uplifting and hopeful. That doesn't mean be sweet to the Dems, but it does mean be decent in expression and image.

    Nothing has changed.

    The people who hate Sarah Palin after what happened Saturday are the same ones who hated her before Saturday.

    But now they think they have a bigger, better soapbox to stand on.

    I've never seen a violent image in a political speech. Oh and speech is spelled with two "e's", there is no "a" in speech.

    Does this mean photos of soldiers' caskets are now off limits?
