Some here may go through elaborate mental gymnastics to try to justify the unjustifiable, but the American people seem to have this one right.
    The reason Palin's graphics are indefensible is because Giffords asked her to take it down some time ago. Without that having happened, this would be a nonstory. Or have you forgotten about freedom of speech, at the very least?

    One wonderful thing that's happened from this incident's fallout is that she's no longer a contenda.

    I'd like to see those folks in the other thread who attacked that stupid palin map, say the same things here.
    I see this whole crosshair thing as an insincere fad. I don't really know if it can be chalked up to hypocracy as much as its just some flavor of the month that we will soon forget about.

    There are Democrats already referring to the Republicans as Nazis, on the house floor, so I'm sure this civility craze won't last long.

    I never expected it too either honestly. We have too many in our culture who are not willing to compromise for the good of the whole.

    What is weak minded is making that leap of logic necessary in accusing those who criticize Palin's militant rhetoric as somehow indicating some sort of direct causality. Such extreme simplification indicates a simplistic approach to a complex issue.

    Anyone who call's Palin's rhetoric, "militant", and doesn't criticise even more violent rhetoric coming from the opposite side of the political fence is probably more weak minded than Jared Loughner.

    It has its upsides and downsides. One downside is a loss of civility.
