Democrats have no class. They continue to remind us of that time and time again, yet you stupid idiots still vote for them. Amazing.

Man Arrested For Throwing Tomato At Palin

http://wcco.com/politics/palin.tomato.moa.2.1...



Bloomington Police say a man threw a tomato at former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin during her Monday appearance at the Mall of America, but didn't hit her.

Officers say two of their own were hit by tomato fragments instead, after the tomato hit the stage about 10 feet from Palin. People on the second level balcony, where the tomato was thrown from, helped police apprehend the man accused of throwing it.

Police identified him as Jeremiah Wobbe from St. Paul. They said he was arrested and could face assault and disorderly conduct charges. Officers added that they found two more tomatoes he'd been carrying.

Palin was at the mall signing copies of her book, "Going Rogue," for four hours Monday. She did not address the crowd, but did speak individually to owners of the books she signed.

Sure, there are Reps who get into trouble from time to time, but in the last year or so the Dems have sprinted to a commanding lead with corrupt stupid parasite politicians. Short list: John Edwards, Braney Frank, John Kerry, Geitner, Rangle, Van Jones, this idiot. Shameful.

"The 2001 anthrax attacks in the United States, also known as Amerithrax from its Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) case name, occurred over the course of several weeks beginning on September 18, 2001, one week after the September 11 attacks. Letters containing anthrax spores were mailed to several news media offices and two Democratic U.S. Senators, killing five people and infecting 17 others."

Ever consider why it made the news? If it were a Republican, it would just be another day of calling the president a Nazi, yelling out "You lie!" at him in Congress, or calling for things like armed insurrection.

It's news because most progressives are exactly as you describe.

If you think these comments are out of line, I encourage you to revisit comments by right-wingers following Wellstone's plane crash.

Palin is a typical bully. Loves dishing it out, but screams bloody murder at the slightest thing she gets back.

When did Republicans turn into such sissies?

you continue to pollute these pages with your silly comments. if the republicans had said such a thing it would be on the headlines with every democrat demanding the resignation of said individual. the press would have been relentless. but you , you are deaf and blind. you are a person of extreme limited abilities and zero vision

It hasn't happened since the Civil War when Democrats decided to make war against the United States so they could keep their slaves, but based on arguments based on principle against Lincoln's Federal Government. Today's Democrats don't know principle, just what Keith Olbermann tells them. Still, it's quite amazing a Democrat would resign for such a statement in this era. The communists that make up today's Democrat party aren't reticent about wishing for the death of their opponents, it's what communists do and promise if given power.

I don't understand this. If I were to publicly, or on this string express a wish that Barak Obama was dead, no matter the means, I'd probably get a phone call and visit from the Secret Service. Why are these two hate-monger's getting by with self-admonishment?
