Palin in the Cross-Hairs
Let me start this off by saying that, yes, of course Sarah Palin is an idiot! Among a lot of other things, the woman has basically degenerated into this mean-spirited and divisive perpetrator of hackneyed commentary (bullshit perhaps is a better term)/imagery (the targeting of vulnerable congressmen/women via those stupid little cross-hairs only the most blatant example), etc.. But a) A)!! the individual (not to mention the "right", in general) is hardly alone in utilizing these tactics and b) there isn't a single iota of evidence that those stupid little cross-hairs of hers had ANYTHING....WHATSOEVER to do with this tragedy in Arizona. Nada. And, yes, me-buckos, for hacks like Paul Krugman and Keith Olbermann to have come out ALMOST IMMEDIATELY and try to make some hay over this, I'll admit it, I find that pretty damned contemptible, too. I'm sorry, but I do.
