"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

MSM Boiz Try To Take Down Two Women Pols With One Bullet

Cuz you know Sarah Palin is waaaayyyyy scarier than Jared Loughner. (H/T Murphy at "PUMA PAC.")

I am not going to spend a lot of time belaboring the point. But Loughner is not the only one out there who's mantra is "die bitch."

The politicization of the Giffords assassination attempt, by the boiz in the MSM is beyond the pale. (H/T myiq2xu at "The Confluence.")

No Feminist, be they Left or Right in their leanings, should be fooled by this anti-woman feeding frenzy.

A few other comments I found meaningful and eye-opening were made by:

Dr. Socks at "The Reclusive Leftist."

Rev. Amy at "Rabble Rouser Ruminations."

Uppity Woman at her self titled blog.

Amy Siskind at "The New Agenda."

and

Anna Belle Pfau at "Peacocks and Lilies" who was first out of the gate with her cogent statement.

Honestly, I would not be able to keep read political commentary at all, were it not for my PUMA friends in the blogosphere.

SYD is going back into lurk mode for a while. Just felt I needed to comment on this tragedy.


Peace. And thanks to all of you for keeping me sane.

SYD

Addendum:

Equally sensible and cogent post from a non-PUMA. (H/T Prof. Jacobson at Legal Insurrection.) Yes, Mrs. Palin is owed an apology.

And also linked at Prof. Jacobson's blog, this youtube montage of various Tweets calling for the murder of one woman pol, in the wake of the attempted assassination of another:



Oh. My. God.

  3. So glad to see you out of lurk mode, even temporarily, but sorry for the circumstances. It's been a tough week to be alive and cognizant.

  4. Hey, SYD - thanks for the props, and for your post. Great to *see* you again!

    And yes - the way Palin has been treated is not unlike how Hillary was treated - by her own party, I might add.

    Great post!

    LOL! Well yes, but considering the alternative, alive and cognizant really is preferable.
