    The OP was the one that specifically decided to take a sign by a single idiot and try to slander the entire group of people that have (R) next to their name. If he's going to do that then calling out the hypocrisy of it by showing that for one to apply his standard then he TOO would be a "real class act" because idiots on his side did the same type of thing. That IS addressing the OP.

    If the OP didn't write out a partisan hack line then you'd have had a point, but the OP made this a hyper partisan thread and thus attacking his hyper partisan point is spot on.
    Fair enough.

    I see your point. -- Douchebaggery may have been unfair.

    Harshaw's first point was direct and valid.

    But I stand by my position that bringing far-lefter pic into the discussion was a typical 'they did it too' response.

    Me, I'm going to hold you personally responsible for this guy. Only fair, right?
    Yes, we know and get that there are extremes on both sides. But how relevant is this to the entire OP? Not just the partisan comments by the poster, but the story linked to in the OP regarding a threat on a sitting president.

    You obviously see it as more relevant than I do.

    The leftwing wackos are not in control of the party and never have been.

    Yes some on the left may have been critical of Bush and some were harsher than others...

    There has been a major change though....The left wing fringe wackos are still very much the fringe. The Republicans on the other hand and shattered too the point where the wacko fringe is now the base and their current leaders are just as wacked out.

    The wacko fringe on both sides were barely even newsworthy not long ago. Now it is all that is left of the Republican party in their pundits, their politicians and what is left of the dwindleing party supporters. They are reprsented at the townhalls. Old white pissed off men mostly who are pissed that a black man won the whitehouse. Hatemongers, fearmongers and racists.

    Their agruments at the townhalls prove it. With all of the legimate construtive debate people could be having all they have to offer is nitwit death panel spew and other nonsenseacle fearmongering junk.

    This wacko needs to be jailed and investigated to the highest degree..let's just see where his past connections lead. I will be interesting.
    Hyper-partisan hacks never see anything wrong with their side. Wackos on both sides of the political spectrum are actually quite similar in behavior. They protest with an idiotic sign like this guy did and people on the other side use it as political currency to further their own hyper-partisan talking points. Obviously, you are no different.

    Some nut holding up a silly sign is not what the SS should be concerned about.

    Did you seriously need to add that last part, and basically assume the other party is completely filled with indecent people?

    They don't really have a choice.

    • John Wilkes Booth
    • Charles Giteau
    • Leon Czolgosz
    • Lee Harvey Oswald
    • John Hinkley, Jr.

    "Some nut" is the one most likely to actually get a gun and make good on the silly sign.

    Huh? Saying that Obama, his wife, and his two children should die isn't a big deal?

    If my name was on that sign, I would be horrified that someone was wishing my and my family's death.

Buh-bye, asshole.

    That being said -- the way some people try to deflect or derail a discussion by digging up something the other extreme once did -- pretty lame Harshaw. Pretty lame.

    Partisan hack douchebaggery of the highest order.

    Deal with the issue in OP or don't post.
    Ummmm.... the issue in the OP, the way I saw it was posting an example of an extremist and then generalizing that he is in some way 'mainstream' of all republicans.

    I think Harshaw dealt with the issue of the OP very well.

    You should be stating that the OP, and thus this entire thread was partisan hack douchebaggery of the highest order instead of blasting Harshaw.

    Shame on yourself. Stand against partisan hack douchebaggery of both sides or don't bother mentioning it.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
