"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
He's neither. And even if he was it shouldn't be blamed on the words of Sarah Palin or Keith Olbermann.
The truth is, the guy is more than likely a schitzophrenic.
Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
Since you're so intellectually aware of the world that's far away from you - how many fingers am I holding up?
Or how about we put him in the mental-health wing of a hospital for observation and analysis and then have DOCTORS actually determine his mental condition and what to do, next?
And Loughner's not an example of HOW TO HANDLE THINGS - he's an example of what happens when someone's a nutter and doesn't get put away for a while. . . he's an example of what happens when people don't DO anything.

What is the best responsible thing for him to do?
Most people are advocating that he gets help, not that his behavior be excused...
And the guy was shot twice at a community gathering, where he did nothing wrong. I'd say he has every right to be angry or upset about that... If you want to argue his anger is misdirected, then that is a different direction than the conversation has been in since I have gotten here, but I'd agree with you.
Hoping that he gets help would involve helping him realize his anger is misguided.

Is Olbermann, Beck, Hannity and the rest of them blaming each others rhetoric? If the left is pointing out Palin's map, is the right talking about this guy and pointing to MNSBC like some people are doing in this thread?
Personally, I don't think it's Palin's fault.. it would be idiotic to say her map was responsible or encouraged it. I do think her map was in bad taste, and I remember when it came out... it got a lot of negative attention. She didn't remove it back then, and I think she is smart enough to know that the map was going to create that type of reaction. I think that is part of ploy to stay in the media though.
For as much as she claims the media is against her and has it out for her, she loves giving them "ammo" and this time it came back and bit her in the a**.

Before you criticize someone you should walk a mile in their shoes, that way when you do criticize them you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.
A victim of the Arizona shootings who had been widely quoted in the news media as blaming the massacre on rhetoric from Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin is a known liberal activist who has previously campaigned against Beck.
The victim, James Eric Fuller, was arrested yesterday at a Tuscan town hall meeting after shouting "You're dead!" at Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.
He was charged with making threats, intimidation and disorderly conduct and was involuntarily committed to a psychiatric hospital for evaluation, said Pima County Sheriff's Department spokesman Jason Ogan.
Fuller, a 63 year-old disabled military veteran, was shot in the knee and back during the attack that wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and left six people dead and 13 others wounded.
Following the shooting, Fuller gave an interview to the far-left Democracy NOW, in which he did not mince words at apportioning blame for the tragedy.
"It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target," Fuller said.
"Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled – senseless hatred leading to murder, lunatic fringe anarchism, subscribed to by John Boehner, mainstream rebels with vengeance for all, even 9-year-old girls," he added, referring to the death of nine year old Christina Taylor Green.

My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
