Why is it that a man who threatens Eric Cantor (R-VA) via a YouTube video is arrested and charged with a crime, but a teabagger who on his blog called for breaking the windows at the offices of Democrats is left alone to spew his bile? Is it that when it happens to Republicans it’s a crime, but when it happens to Democrats it’s boys being boys??
Are we selfish individualists…or a society capable of empathy and something resembling collective concern? Guess which way I’m leaning?
Why do Republicans feel justified in blaming the victims for the tragedies that befall them? Yes, Bill Kristol had a point (though it was made in exceedingly inept and ham-handed fashion), but could he have been any more insensitive in blaming Russians for the subway bombings in Moscow?
Is it just me, or is George Will a dick? What kind of man denigrates the winner of a Nobel Prize? Especially when sitting next to Paul Krugman is about as close to a Nobel Prize as Will will likely ever get.
Why would ANYONE at CNN think that Erick Erickson has ANYTHING of value to add to the public discourse? Or is CNN trying to surreptitiously out-Fox Fox Noise Channel?
What if a teabagger ruled the country? Would democracy stand a chance? And how long would it be before dissidents and those who dare oppose the government faced firing squads? No, I’m NOT joking.
Why would ANY rational person give a flying(&^% what Bill O’Reilly thinks? About ANYTHING?
For what possible reason would the government be announcing- three months in advance- that they’ll be undertaking an offensive against the Taliban in Afghanistan? Granted, it’s been a while since I was an Army officer, but I’d always thought the element of surprise was important.
Mitt Romney is a 24-karat hypocrite, particularly when it comes to health care. So why aren’t the media making more of an effort to point this out? Or is it that when a Democrat does it, it’s hypocrisy…and when a Republican does it, it’s maintaining flexibility?
