Rhetoric is not irrelevant

I haven’t vetted this, and I’m reluctant to comment until all the facts are in. Still …

UPDATE: Jesse Kelly was Giffords’ opponent in the Nov. election. Can we at least agree this kind of posturing is, at best, absurd? I salute his service, but I don’t recall Ike driving around with a pistol in his crotch when he ran for political office.

How long ’til the NRA says, “If only the congresswoman was packing heat…”

  1. Please be better than this… Once we know this guy is a conservative, tea party guy, okay.

  2. I’m not making a judgment, just presenting potential evidence. I think both sides should cut out the demonizing of political opponents, and it looks like both sides are jumping to conclusions, which I may be guilty of in a passive sense.

  3. Political rhetoric has been and will always be hot – Adams / Jefferson, Burr / Hamilton, etc. Adams & Jefferson demonstrated that once political enemies can become friends.

    If anything the bulls eye metaphor will now / should be a thing of the past.

  4. I see the shill who posts as ‘Atlantan’ has “done his/her part” by spamming false equivalency in this corner of the Web, just has its counterparts have done elsewhere.

    1) after-fact false equation of phrase ‘dead to me’, to an actual shooting.
    2) false equation of DNC Presidential election swing state map (the bullseye reference) with Representative-hitlist doublespeak.

    The speed and breadth of our taliban’s propaganda machine has been amazing to watch. It reminds me of the Mission Impossible assignment disclaimer.

  5. Mike – and the left (Krugman, CNN, et al said nothing – absolutely fair and silent…) right. Sorry to see that you are caught up in the cult of hate.
