    Extremism is any ideology or political act far outside the perceived political center of a society

    In actual fact, Loughner was more extreme than most extremists are.
    That is true but if he is indeed a schizophrenic that is part of the condition. Schizo's have extreme paranoia and usually hear voices, think the government is spying on them, irrationally percieve certain individuals as threats, etc., If proven this would be completely different from the extremists to which Hilary is comparing him. It is also ridiculous to compare and individual like this guy to pervasive group extremism displayed by some Muslim organizations like the Taliban.

    It seems too many politicians want to attract attention to themselves by giving their statements to the media before all the facts are in, and thus put themselves in danger of appearing reckless and impulsive. Such is this case with Hillary.

    She, as the Secretary of State, should have waited and said something more dignified, as Obama did when he first heard the news.

    Using a domestic tragedy to make a foreign policy comparison was foolish, and whoever advised her to make such a statement was foolish as well, This destroys any ideas she might have had for the presidency.

    A few serious reasons I can't think of to explain this logic are #1. it's woman and logic almost never enters into it. #2. She's a wild eyed Liberal. Finally nothing the Democrats have done since they took over control makes any sense at all.

    I'm just happy that the Lefties have finally let President Bush slide on this one, I thought for sure they would have found a way to blame him for this.

    In a way extreme does come into the picture as the AZ. shooter is extremely mentally ill, but they always leave that out of the partisan attacks.

    The Liberals don't get irony, Justabubba. They carry on with the same shtick no matter what the changing circumstances.

    Re: Hillary sparks a furor

    BTW, is her use of extremist rhetoric to basically lie about folks, could it be considered "violent rhetoric"?


    Is this the sort of rhetoric, that we should be engaging in, linking the actions of a madman to phatom "extremists"?

    1. The thread title had me believe Hillary was hanging up her SOS gig and her very public sideline job at the Gerald Ford/Chevy Chase School of Falling Down Drunk before she ended up in a body cast. You know, get a little R&R with Billy Bob on the beach before...

    2. Resuming her Gerald Ford imitation and making a run at The Obalmer.

    I wonder, will SNL start a routine called This Week With Hillary where she's continually falling down like a drunk. Ford got his SNL fame... and he never broke a bone in the process. Hillary, she's in a class of her own.

    As for explaining the logic behind this "extremist" "not extremist" nonsense... well... this comes directly from the horse's ass...

    Billy Bob was explaining it depends on what the definition of extremist is. Those from Extremistan are not as extreme as those who are extreme and not from Extremistan, or something of the sortie. It gets complicated when you have Extremistan supporters in military uniforms, for they are not from Extremistan, and are sleeping with the enemy, yet possess all the traits of the natives of Extremistan. But when they shout Allah Akbar, wear a military uniform to commit their heinous acts, Extremistan points are deducted. It's strange, but Billy Bob tells me them's the rules.
