What’s the best way to memorialize victims of a national tragedy? Free t-shirts and the unveiling of a new campaign slogan at a pep rally, of course.

As Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste…”

Reminder to Democrats… just because caskets are made of hardwood does not make it appropriate to dance upon them… no matter how much you need to fundraise.

Guess who else has a “target”map?

From the “Heartland Strategy” of the Democratic Leadership Conference:

…complete with bullseyes and entitled, “Behind Enemy Lines”…

So did this “climate of hate” contribute to Saturday’s massacre?

Olbermann went on another self-righteous diatribe Saturday regarding the shooting spree at Rep. Giffords’ meeting that morning. He ranted incessantly about all the conservatives that must be to blame - from Palin to Beck to O’reilly to Sharron Angle and the Tea Party - for the massacre.

Yes, it’s all conservatives’ fault.

Nevermind that while you’re calling for an end to “gun metaphors”, your own community organizer in chief, Barack Obama, is out rallying supporters by telling them how to “counter Republican attacks” like this:

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”

Nevermind that while you’re casting all blame on Conservatives creating a “climate of hate”, you’re completely ignoring the fact that the climate of hate is almost exclusively a progressive movement.

Nevermind that even when you try to use a historical reference to bolster your point, you highlight your ignorance to such a degree that you actually end up undermining your entire lengthy, boring diatribe.

We will not return to the 1850s, when a pro-slavery Congressman nearly beat to death an anti-slavery Senator…

Here’s a free history lesson, Keith… that pro-slavery Congressman, Preston Brooks, was a DEMOCRAT. His victim, the anti-slavery Senator, was Charles Sumner… a REPUBLICAN.

Next time you try to get all self-righteous… you might want to do a little research first. Idiot.

About that “Climate of Hate”
January 10th, 2011 8:32 am

While the media is rushing to blame Sarah Palin for this weekend’s massacre because her website had Giffords’ district in a “bullseye”, they conveniently choose to ignore that the most popular liberal blog also had a target on Giffords’ district

Who to primary? Well, I’d argue that we can narrow the target list by looking at those Democrats who sold out the Constitution last week. I’ve bolded members of the Blue Dogs for added emphasis.

Not all of these people will get or even deserve primaries, but this vote certainly puts a bulls eye on their district. If we can field enough serious challengers, and if we repeat the Donna Edwards and Joe Lieberman stories a few more times, well then, our elected officials might have no choice but to be more responsive. Because if we show them that their AT&T lobbyist buddies can’t save their jobs, they’ll pay more attention to those who can.

…but don’t expect them to either admit that or point similar blame his direction.

And while the same media is breathlessly talking up a “climate of hate” allegedly borne of “right wing pundits”, let’s not forget where the real climate of hate exists.
