    Which proves your original comment incorrect. Thank you.

    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Against who, a generic silhouette? Take it up with 90s.
    It looks more violent than cross hairs or targets on maps.

    Gives me the idea to go shoot someone who is wearing a hat.

    And yes, some people on the left are doing that, and some people on the right are blaming the left. Stupidity is abound on both sides.
    Muslims attacked us on 9/11 O'Reilly says. Behar and Whoopie walk off their stage. Not all Muslims are bad they say. Like Bill really meant All Muslims attacked us or all muslims are bad.

    That argument hasn't been made by me, so by continuing to press me on it you succeed only in making yourself look foolish.
    You know, it's been a long time since I've felt as angry as I have the last few days. It sure wasn't caused by the tea party. It was caused by the bull **** and lies being spewed by the sheriff and the media about the right, the tea party and sarah palin's map.

    When I saw the Sheriff and heard his comments my first reaction was "there is one great American". After hearing him several times, my new response is "damn, there is one really great American". He stands tall and says what must be said to those who do not want to hear it.

    No.

    The OPs argument is weak and overgeneralized. Copy/pasted right from Hannity's talking points.

    They owe it to themselves and their readers and listeners to carefully consider the whirlwind they got themselves caught in, seemingly willingly.
