It is times like this that try men’s souls. Political strife is at an all time high. The government is out of control. Our representatives ignore us. Tea parties have swept the country, seething with antigovernment sentiment. Some people advocate armed insurrection. Others shoot children, and others fly planes into IRS offices.
I recently came across this blog post claiming that Sarah Palin (and the right wing in general) were consistently more violent in word and deed than the left. I think that perhaps the author read a bit too much into Palin's words and assumed that she was inciting violent activity. I think maybe she was speaking metaphorically. The author also went on to claim that the right often gets a free pass in the media while the left gets called out for every little outburst.
