Gutless Cowards

Observe the man who undoubtedly receives medicare speaking in an Iowa town hall meeting with Senator Charles Grassley earlier this week:

The president of the United States, that’s who you should be concerned about. Because he’s acting like a little Hitler, I’d take a gun to Washington if enough of you would go with me.

Observe that Grassley says NOTHING to dissuade the gentlemen from his thesis or desire.

This has happened again, and again, and again in the last month. And Republican politicians, like Grassley who should know better — and frankly DO know better — do nothing to dissuade those making threats against the President, their silence can be easily taken by the gullible (or determined) as an endorsement.

But it doesn’t stop at just silence. A Republican candidate for Governor of Idaho talks about getting a license to "Hunt Obama"; James Inhofe, one of Oklahoma’s two right-wing Senators states that Obama by proposing things similar to medicare is going to cause citizens to start a revolution, in the same state that saw Tim McVeigh blow up the Murrah Building. Wally Herger, a Republican from Northern California praises a man who calls himself a "Right-Wing Terrorist". All of these things within just couple days.

Yet, barely any mention of any of these things is made in the national media — but then again, a single submission to Move-On wasn’t involved.

Q of the Day: Changing Your Name



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
