    Right - if you're an asshole.

    I just used 'retarded' in another thread. If there are any Sarah Palins reading, feel free to flame me for it.
    I hate Sarah Palin.

    Well, that's true, but maybe they are. This thread isn't about how insults are bad, it's how some hurt the innocent as well as those they are used against.

    But name calling, based on ones personal, subjective worldview, is really an immature and insensitive way of dealing with ones frustrations or anger.

    Sometimes. And sometimes it is an appropriate way of helping someone understand the impact of their own immature, insensitive insults.

    this thread is also about all the incompetents in this administration surrounding our poor perplexed president

    the la times this afternoon---devastating

    President Obama Day 386: What's happened to him? | Top of the Ticket | Los Angeles Times)

    obama, day 386, what happened, asks the times

    andrew malcom's answer---CHICAGO

    so true, so extremely true

    but that THE TIMES would say IT

    wow!

    now, the times goes on to point out---EVERYONE's STARTING TO SAY IT

    that can only be because it's UNDENIABLE

    as IN YOUR FACE as, well, CHICAGO

    the most CORRUPT politics in the nation

    we're talking RAHM, here:

    "the famously irascible Mr Emanuel treats cabinet principals like minions. 'I am not sure the president realises how much he is humiliating some of the big figures he spent so much trouble recruiting into his cabinet,' says the head of a presidential advisory board who visits the Oval Office frequently."

    this is the FINANCIAL TIMES talking

    HUFFINGTON is onto the exact same story

    as was DOUG WILDER yesterday (in POLITICO)

    wow!

    that's pretty sea changey

    and this summation, this sorry little story about a president's souring, CAN be all wound up in one wicked word: CHICAGO

    ouch!

    It's much easier to justify ones actions and deeds, rather than engaging in honest self analysis, that's very true.

    Yes, that's entirely true. Witness the various twisted rationalizations for using "retarded" or posting mocking insults and pictures on this very thread.

    do you think it's leaderly-like and visionary for the white house to resort to teasing and taunting its political opponents?

    including some of those who don't even hold office?

    you see, some people keep their eyes on the big picture stuff

    others can't tell the difference

    petty put downs and paltry aspersions take the place of policy

    the president's team is pathetic

    as compared to conservative pundents who cant miss an opportunity to put down the president, the democrats, the any f****** thing they dont like.

    and yes, the mocking of palin should be fine because hey, ITS SATIRE RIGHT!!! and hey, who the f*** needs to write "raise american spirit" on their hands? If something is important to you, do you need to note it?
    What right have I to say you are wrong? Only through speaking can you prove your own folly...

    leadership is held to different standards than "pundents"

    most americans don't look to the white house for their satire, especially in times like these
