    They're both cut from the same cloth, the sooner you realize that the better.

    Yes, every mistake is satire... so much for her crack investigation team eh Petey?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    That's just unprovable rhetoric which is a habit many people on the right, including Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh and their many supporters.

    Not by long shot, more rhetoric. Glenn Beck would have spun a similar story and put it on his white board and somehow would draw the conclusion President Obama is a Commie socialist Nazi.

    What you don't realize is the story is actually believable coming from some Sarah Palin supporters.

    You still don't see your own hypocrisy do you. You REALLY don't see it?

    Would have? So now your crystal ball shows hypothetical events as reality.... you said something about unprovable rhetoric? This is just too precious!!!

    IT's believable to sheeple who hang on the word of ANY opinion barker. Somehow I doubt that will ever sink in with you.

    It's interesting to note in passing how the taking point continues to be spun in a certain way. Maddow was caught out. She "fell for" a story, and that is how the meme is transmitted. The thread topic is almost identically worded on various political debate sites. None of them mention the fact that she realised her error and is on record admitting the fact.
    Don't work out, work in.

    pretty sure if you bother to read the whole thread, you'll see her Twitter retraction was mentioned... as was her lack of a retraction on her actual show.

    Are you saying I could never ever support anything Democratic, or anything from President Obama, because of my ideological blindness? I just want to clarify. Is that what you're saying?

    Not at all. I am simply being a smartass to you in reply to you being a smartass to me.
