Can't really argue with this





Linky.  Could this be even worse than Palin's blood-libel blather?

I'm all verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves. I'll give you a topic ... 

Work with me on this, comrades. What's worse from a moral standpoint: tone-deaf oblivious cluelessness, or deliberately taking malicious pleasure in belittling a tragedy? Discuss.

  2. OMG! Malkin's tweet worse than Palin's blood lather? I'm going to say no. Intentional or not, Palin's site with the targetted congressional districts incites violence and anyone would have to be really deaf, dumb and blind to not see that.

    Malkin's tweet while macabre and so not helpful, and yes, she too has her share in the pumped up rhetoric in the US, that particular tweet, is just horribly distasteful; probably one of those "Ain't I terrible?" party games the far right like to play.

    He was an actor of genius. There was no more overwhelming actor on the stage, in the motion pictures, nor even in the pulpit. He would whirl arms, bang tables, glare from mad eyes, vomit Biblical wrath from a gaping mouth; but he would also coo like a nursing mother, beseech like an aching lover, and in between tricks would coldly and almost contemptuously jab his crowds with figures and facts — figures and facts that were inescapable even when, as often happened, they were entirely incorrect.

    This could describe a lot of people in todays news but me thinks no more appropriatly than those on the "moral" right
