I put this up in reaction to the blame game that immediately followed the Tucson shootings. I was mortified at how Sarah Palin received the worst of it. One caller starting going on about how Palin issued a call to arms and demanded that Tea Partiers lay to waste the Democrats and liberals. When the host pressured the caller to site his source for this outrageous libel, he stuttered and then spurted out, “Well that’s just her M.O.”
It’s sick how we are letting hate get in the way of debate and how we use tragedies to try and silence opposing opinion. And it’s sick how innocent citizens, such as Sarah Palin, can have such vile and misinformation leveled against them. Speaking of misinformation, I find it funny how many will rattle off bad information to support their view of a particular person or issue. But when that information is exposed for what it is, they rarely will issue a retraction or apology. And I guess that’s what this toon is all about.***If you are a regular follower of this blog… my sincere apologies.
