You could hear in Hannity's voice that he wanted Scalise to die so, so badly. He was yearning for the man's death so that he could further politicize it and make him a rightwad martyr. As Hannity et al. are the conscience of the far right and they are seeing this as just another juicy propaganda piece, why should I care about the individual? Another factor is that Rep Scalise was possibly associated with white supremacist groups.

    So, given those two things, I am just about as concerned for this guy getting shot as the republican lawmakers were concerned about the Sandy Hook shootings. I'm not saying that this isn't totally screwed, morally wrong and indicative of our horrible political situation, but I'm not going to shed a tear for this guy. Just more blood on the alter of the 2nd Amendment, right?

    Harsh? You bet.

    I may or may not apologize for the above statement later on but that is how I feel now. This whole thing is so screwed up but that is where we are as a society. Broken with no real hope of repair in my onion.

    I need to go fishing...
    Brutally honest. I like it.
    I don't know much about Scalise, but the evidence looks weak. Let's try not to forget that Obama sat in church with Rev Wright spewing hatred from the pulpit... The whole race thing has been played so often it's hard to give it much credence anymore. Trying to kill as many republicans as you can is a whole other box of worms.

    Apparently your memory is clouded by the hate you spew. Obama, if you will recall removed himself and his family from that church after Wright's infamous sermon.

    Mike, you have a right to your opinion, but not the facts.

Comic would have posted about 4 pictures of an Obama effigy being hung from a pole.

    No one has posted a single picture of Kathy Griffin holding Trump's severed head, or peeped a word about the play that's about assassinating Trump, or posted any screen caps of Twitter where users are calling for someone to shoot the guy. I'm not saying he's representative of all of the left, or even a significant portion of it, just pointing out the hypocrisy.
    You are really going to compare Kathy Griffin to Donald Trump and Sharon Angle talking about second amendment remedies?

    BTW the assassins are the villains in that play.

    Absolutely true, I would rather they stay here so I can keep calling them the a-holes they are.

    Well yeah...cuz it gained national media attention. What did you think would happen? Up until that point Obama and Wright had been buddies since the early 80's.

    That relationship, if it were a Republican, would have been a career killer. NO QUESTION.

    Not really, Trump has been friends with Mafia.

    Not to mention the right wing love of the bigot Franklyn Graham and the almost mandatory requirement to speak at Bob Jones university.

    That's some serious bullshit right there Shawn. What else did you hear him say because I missed that.
