Hopes are high for Representative Gabrielle Giffords, though it is too soon to know. The big question after the horrific shooting in Tucson was, according to Maggie’s Farm, “whether the mainstream media was going to blame Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, the Tea Party, Bible-thumpin’ gun clingers everywhere, or simply Republicans in general.”
We published, on this page, a couple of pieces making gentle fun of Nancy Pelosi. We do not hate Nancy Pelosi, nor do we wish her ill in any way. We wish for her not to be Speaker. We disagree with her ideas. We think her tactics in the 111th Congress were tacky. And we wish she would take a course in economics.
Cannot Democrats defend their ideas without wanting Republicans dead? I have heard the most vile and venomous insults from Liberals wanting to find the words to say something so nasty that — what? they will win the prize for nastiness?— it is as if they were in a contest for who can top whom with the most unacceptable comment.
What I have NOT heard, are Liberals defending their ideas, explaining why their ideas will work, why their ideas are better for the country, why their ideas will help ordinary Americans. I can only conclude that they cannot defend, and that’s why they turn to the venom. It’s truly sad.
