    Oh. So your point is even dumber than I thought. You're demanding word-for-word equivalence, and if it can't be shown that lefties carried signs that said "bury X with Reagan," and if no one can show anything like that, then hey, this really MUST be unprecedented and some new level of nastiness.

    I get it. It's preposterous, but I get it.

    We're talking equivalence here. Nothing dumb about asking for equivalence.

    Even so a blog posting from a site i've never heard of awesome. Not exactly an equivalence. We were talking about signs at a rally and you divert it off into right field. That wasn't the claim I was making I was looking for some equivalence I didn't make a point of "unprecendented new level of nastiness". The article was about burying Reagan's legacy not burying something with Reagan. The article was about his legacy not reagan himself. So again a false equivalence.

    Yeah, and the "offending" sign in question was about the health care bill, not Kennedy himself. Or Obama himself.

    And it IS dumb if you need something to be word-for-word identical in order to establish some kind of precedent of incivility. If you now say that's not what you meant, then what -- exactly -- did you mean?

    No the offending sign was about burrying the health care bill with Kennedy. Your article was about burying a legacy.

    We're talking about equivalence here. I'm not trying to establish a precendent of incivility nor have I mentioned that I just was asking if there was an actual equivalence.

    Given the incredible and unprecedented amount of hate and vitriol that was spewed at Bush by the Left 01-08 I am amazed at our Leftists. Frankly Obama has yet to be demonized to the degree Bush was.

    Now that the shoe is on the other foot, it isn't comfy??

    Yeah. I said that.

    And if there wasn't, then what? Make the point.

    Which has absolutely nothing to do with the sign. Try to stay on topic

    Someone jumped on the OP saying somehow the response was related in equivalence to the original subject which it wasn't. So I was curious if there was a real equivalence.
