I have way too much to do at the moment to spend a lot of time blogging, but I want to comment briefly on another aspect of this Arizona bullshit.
I've noticed that the left has taken to claiming that Jared Loughner can be connected to the Tea Party because both are "anti-government."
Really, libs? REALLY? This is the best you sanctimonious fucknuts can come up with?
Allow me to quote from Sarah Palin's recent statement:
In an ideal world all discourse would be civil and all disagreements cordial. But our Founding Fathers knew they weren’t designing a system for perfect men and women. If men and women were angels, there would be no need for government. Our Founders’ genius was to design a system that helped settle the inevitable conflicts caused by our imperfect passions in civil ways.
Yeah, Palin and those crazy teabaggers are so "anti-government" that they actually have a fucking vision of what government should and should not do while still admitting that government itself is necessary.
Oh, wait, that's not anti-government at all, you malevolent motherfuckers.
Claiming that conservatism is anti-government is like claiming that rape laws are anti-sex. For people who consider themselves enlightened and nuanced, you assholes sure seem to have a problem with degrees and shades of meaning.
Of course, you most likely know this already, but you're so obsessed with scoring political points that you really don't care anymore.
Go to hell.
Incidentally, I also find the ridiculous talk of "right wing rage" and "vitriolic rhetoric" somewhat disingenuous. Since I've witnessed, among other things, a guy in a computer lab wearing one of these and a history professor joking about assassinating Bush, I really, really doubt that this so-called "concern" about the tone of our current discourse is sincere.
