    what utter and complete bull****. there is precisely zero connection between sarah palins speeches and that nutjob deciding that his congresswoman was part of the secret plot to have the US sieze control of grammar.

    END OF DISCUSSION
    The victims are the one's who were shot in Tucson... Pal. Who accused Sarah Palin of being an accessory to the crime? Not even Paul Krugman did that. You obviously didn't like what he wrote, but it was true what he said.

    Assassination Attempt In Arizona - NYTimes.com

    A Democratic Congresswoman has been shot in the head; another dozen were also shot.
    We don’t have proof yet that this was political, but the odds are that it was. She’s been the target of violence before. And for those wondering why a Blue Dog Democrat, the kind Republicans might be able to work with, might be a target, the answer is that she’s a Democrat who survived what was otherwise a GOP sweep in Arizona, precisely because the Republicans nominated a Tea Party activist. (Her father says that “the whole Tea Party” was her enemy.) And yes, she was on Sarah Palin’s infamous “crosshairs” list.

    I for one found it most humorous that her rhetoric was to blame.

    I never stated that it "changed" (Palin used it correctly) from it's original meaning but clearly pointed out that,the term has been used to describe events outside of a jewish conflict, like a metaphor of sorts. Also, to pin the term ONLY to Judaism isn't accurate because other religious minority groups have been "targeted" by this term...

    It's funny, but where was the "outrage" from the left when the wall street journal used the term a few days ago??

    A bad attempt at character assasination.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Leftists love Sarah Palin. Thoughts of Sarah P. make Leftists pee.
