    Barb - whatever may be your favorite adult beverage - I think it might help.

    Like that one?

    Here's another one that makes as much sense as blaming the Tuscon Massacre on the right.

    Michelle Obama has been pushing a healthy diet for all Americans and healthy meals in schools. She even grew her own organic vegetables. She's talked about raw carrots being a healthy snack and she loves them. I wonder if this teacher was an admirer of Michelle's and that's why she had a bag of carrots in the classroom?
    This is very sad, so no need to click on the link. However, maybe we should hold off proclaiming the First Lady innocent until we have the facts.

    How are ya'll going to feel, when the sheriff is called by the defense, to testify that Loughner was pushed over the edge by political speech and that he didn't act based on his emotions? What if Loughner is sentenced to a funny farm, with weekends off?

    Is that what we would call, "justice", in this case?

    And you know this because you have travelled into the future and witnessed this? And what if he does claim he was pushed over the edge by right wing vitriol? Would that meet the standards of insanity in the state of Arizona?

    Do they ever take blame for anything?
    He was using smoke and mirrors. Probably hoping against hope it turned out to be a right-winger.

    I have asked others and failed in getting a response... so Barb I ask you. What exactly did Sheriff Dupnik say that merits his recall from office after thirty years of meritorious service to the people of that county?

    You know when a murder happens and a Sheriff comes out and speaks to reporters?
    They usually come out, tell them whatever few facts they know, such as a person has been found dead and when they have more details they will let the press know.

    That's not even close to what Dupnik did. He was very unprofessional and instead of facts, he speculated about what could have caused it. That set the whole country off. No one even had time to grieve before the attack dogs were released on Palin, Beck, the tea party, talk radio, and anyone on the right.
    The man needs to be canned and the sooner the better.

    It just might and he might walk on account of it. I don't think anybody wants to see that happen.

    Not to mention, it could open the door for another fruitcake to shoot a congress critter and claim the same thing.

    Again Barb, I ask you , what exactly did the Sheriff say that merits his ouster from a position that the voters have entrusted to him for thirty years? What exact words did he utter that so anger you that would cause you to support this recall?
