Can you give an example of one of her vicious attacks?

yea that is how it works. if you are a woman and not a liberal, you will be attacked in the most base manner and NO ONE from the left will stand up. Not one liberal female politician, not one member of the mainstream media NO ONE.

Now if Rush says something about some liberal female, then it is engage the enemy call up the troops and boycott everything assocated with him. Why? Not because someone said something ugly about a woman, but because a LIBERAL WAS ATTACKED.


This is what your side is.
Oooh, is that anything like Ann Coulter saying women should never have been allowed to vote, because they're too stupid? I'm pretty sure Ann isn't a liberal.

For the 5th time, there was no comment about her kid by Bill Maher.

Palin is a horrible example of what a responsible mother should be. Maher was probably referring to Palin as the "retarded" person, not a child.

its so ingraned in you you cannot see the forrest for the trees. you may not know what you are but those of us reading the posts here get it.
Ferd, do you know how many of your conservative friends make fun of what women actually look like? They insult Michelle Obama, Nancy Pelosi, etc. for what they look like. I choose not to sink to that childish level because looks have nothing to do with it, it's what Palin, Bachman & Coulter stand for, believe in, say out loud that I have a problem with. Please, enough with the sanctimony. It's a false front.

ahh.... so when Ann uses satire, it is the same as liberals reporting as fact, that Sarah Palin's son was in fact not her son but her GRANDSON?

like that?


Another tenant of liberalism: if a conservative uses outrageous satire to illistrate a point, suggest the satire was not in fact satire, rather, it is really what they believe in reality.

We're getting awfully vague here, not to mention off-topic. But regardless of whichever "vile attacks" on Palin you are referring to, and whatever you mean by "major", this is hardly proof that the majority of liberals in this country are OK with any truly vile or over-the-line comments. And it certainly doesn't prove that most liberals are okay with Bill Maher's alleged labeling of her youngest son as a "retard".

Where were the boycotts? Where were the calls for Mar to be off TV? This is just a single example. I could go on for days.
Okay, so a lot of liberals were outraged by his comment... and very few (if any) major Republican figures shared their outrage. If nothing else, you just proved that people with a political bias choose what to be bothered with accordingly. It isn't a liberal thing; it's an extremist thing.

You attacked liberalism itself, did you not? I was pointing out to you that, no, being okay with insulting others in any case is not how liberalism in and of itself works.

Why? She brings out her family to ingratiate others to her. She brings them in, and puts them right there, squarely in the center of the debate. Tell her to shut up about them, and then people will be silent. She wants to have her cake and eat it too. No can do.

The freak's entire campaign was made up of savage attacks of libs, which is why in the beginning she was the GOP sweetheart and the GOP was loving up on her. But in all fairness, ALL GOPers do that - they attack, and then whine loudly when they're attacked back, as if somehow they'd been born with a dispensation to be allowed to attack and not get it back. Buncha hypocrites.

didnt you use the word "idiot"? that isnt what they stand for. that is a personal attack.


and yes people on forums say things about pretty much everybody. That happens because that is what the discouse has devolved into. BECAUSE LIBERALS use course, vile, personal attacks to discredit their political enemies. period.

At the end of the day, we know this for certain. If a Republican of any status were to make a nasty comment about the looks of any liberal female, or make vile comments about her, liberals everywhere will sand up and defend and lash out. The "victem" might even get a call from the liberal President. AND the media will make a HUGE deal about it.

However, if a democrat of status says something nasty about a conservative, no one says a bloody word. Media doesnt even mention it. Presidents go play golf, the National Organization for Women dont comment. period.
