and I’ll pick just one comment
1. the ‘No where else to go party’. nt Permalink
Number one thread is an inflammatory letter
but some reflective discussions make it through
with the necessary disclaimers
I’m not saying Palin isn’t an idiot. I’m not saying that the rhetoric of violence doesn’t need to be stopped. But we really need to stop the “we don’t do this” stuff because Repubs DO remember things, you know.
And I know, these aren’t politicians saying it, but we can’t just deny this didn’t happen or we are just as bad as they are.
I’m ready to be flamed.
and as some protest that “never on DU”, some admit
36. Skinner actually got a visit from the Secret Service because of posts threatening Bush.
The reason you rarely see violent rhetoric on DU is that the mods do such a good job deleting those posts before most people get to see them. Permalink
There’s even this
Saw the thread about the Democratic election chart with the bullseyes, thought I’d throw this out for discussion.
After several excuses, one interesting reply
3. Another broken promise
He only brings sling shots to knife fights. Permalink
20. dumb comment, and his predator drone joke was much worse
use predator drones against the Jonas Brothers, ha ha ha. Permalink
Some are flogging the new bestest speech evah
As soon as I’m ready to throw in the towel, the SOB gives one of the most inspiring speeches EVER given by an elected American official.
There’s a little tug of war between the”I love him again”s and the I never stopped”s with the occasional peppering of
26. +1 Being a good President involves more than giving nice speeches. Permalink
Such as this very popular one
while you’re feeling sorry for yourself, save a little for the real victims
or this one
Hey it’s a step from demanding her arrest – but not sure if it’s up or down.
and thi piece of news has some interesting reactions
104. Palin is an “emotional manipulator” look here
http://www.heartless-bitches.com/rants/manipulator/eigh… whatever it is, it’s ALWAYS about Palin, and poor Sarah is SUCH a victim! Permalink
13. The foul taste of your own poisoned brew.
Eventually if all you do politically is distill foulness, don’t bitch when you yourself have a taste of it.
Here is a idea, stop being a hatemonger Permalink
with just one noting the hypocrisy
37. So it is Ok for her to get death threats (assuming the report is true)? nt Permalink
and after they clamored for Palin’s psychiatric examination, they also decided mental illness doesn’t work “in a vacuum”. They know so from “one of them”
He concludes a long rant – partly about medical insurance
Banning guns or abusing the less than sane is not truly the answer, under these conditions.
If ‘we’ – the mentally ill – were truly to blame for gun violence, there would be tens of thousands of mass killings a year, considering the number of we “subnormals” and the number of guns are available.
That argument is a straw man of the scummiest kind.
As I said – I cannot excuse that fucker in Arizona, who’s only advisors (I am convinced) were the Glenn Becks and the Sarah Palins of this world.
But I wonder if he could afford his drugs.
If he couldn’t, then we should rethink the status quo.
It’s one of the most popular threads there.
And the obligatory, weekly
n awful lot of commentary was spent last night on CNN and MSNBC discussing Palin’s stupid mistake. She picked the wrong time, she said the wrong things and her choice of the term blood libel was just outright dumb. At one point someone threw up her latest approval rating from early January, 22%. She’s toast.
But don’t stop calling her out everyone! I myself won’t be happy until that rating goes to 0%.
Sarah, pack it in.
Again, it was impossible to pick one DU-die.
Maybe next Tuesday.
