    On second thought, maybe you are right. That is scary.

    Did you know that when you point the finger of blame at other that you have three of your very own pointing right back at you?

    My apologies, Haymarket. I foolishly went along with your imagery and should have resisted the impulse.

    It would have been better if you had not issued a thinly disguised "apology" at all. I see - I made you do it. I put the imagery in your head. I am responsible for you slandering me.

    Absolutely. It is the chatter of idle minds, filled with the loathing everyone wants to dispel from the political dialogue and yet we can selsom see it in ourselves.

    No, I am sincere in my apology and should have resisted the temptation.

    But it seemed to me it was a quite over the top so i responded in kind, and shouldn't have.

    Read it again and perhaps you'll rethink the imagery yourself, and whther or not it was fair to Sarah Palin, or whether it was more akin to hate sppeech..

    "Palin has the potential to be the most divisive and mean character in American history going back to those who fanned the flames of the Civil War some century and a half ago. When I first saw and heard her acceptance speech at the 2008 GOP Convention, all the warning bells went off. George Wallace was such a character but his appeal was narrow and very limited compared to Palin. She is the deadly poison in the medicine cabinet labeled with a skull and cross bones that if ever taken could well send America to the emergency ward. I only hope and pray should that eventuality ever happen, the patient survives".

    It is that a fair and accurate description of the former governor of Alaska? What do you think?

    This man is intelligent and he's right. Who is he? I might watch more of his videos.

    ... or awful and classless. She had nothing to say (that wasn't self serving) and said it on a day that she should have kept her mouth shut. I thought the problem with Palin was her adject ignorance. Now I see a dangerous wart called narcissism (which I shoud have concluded based on her book that suggested that she could have won the last election if McCain people just got out of the way.)
