    Yes, yes I have. But how is that relevant. Is the partisan hatred of others a justifying force to do the same?

    I think she may be gender confused. I didn't know for a fact (are you saying that's a fact?) that she's a lesbian, but that's not really relevant nor is her gender confusion. My apologies.

    Well she did seem to on twitter but not on her show. She actually blamed it on Beck.
    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.

    Not sure what you're refering to, but it wouldn't matter if true. Inappropriate is inappropriate regardless.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You know what, it is relevant. I see far more bashing of Beck, Rush and Palin than I do any liberal media figure.

    Sorry, you're not one that has any cred to be admonishing me about this.

    Not sure I was admonishing you. Nor do I care about what you consider cred. It is merely a fact that inappropriate is inappropriate no matter who's doing it.

    I'm just referring to your recent characterizations of Rush. I'm not at all sure that you're able to recognize "inappropriate" when it comes from the left.

    Whetehr I am or not is besides the point. If you see it and recognize it as inappropriate, aand you recoginize this as inapprorpriate, there shoudl eb argument that you can't excuse one with the other. Inappropriate is inappropriate no matter who's doing it.

    Well, but the problem is, if you can only recognize the inappropriateness from one side, then you'd have to wonder if something is inappropriate in fact or if that's just your own bias that makes it seem as if it is.

    This shows she was blaming Beck? Seriously, I don't think so, it's a stretch to think she did.
