Of course you could. Those people are the epitome of ignorant. Not sure how that is a defense to this or how their sad existence contradicts my post though.
Also, I believe Lou Dobbs was let go for birther comments though, yes? Not sure what other reporters were pushing this or what their repercussions were.
Not a defense or an excuse as much as a correlation. But as a comparison, who is held to a higher standard? Does the reporter take a beating for saying such a thing and a politician simply gets skewered by the opposing party?
If Lou Dobbs was canned over "birther" comments (honestly don't know if he was), what were, or should have been, the repercussions for those elected officials sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution?
Not disagreeing with your thought at all here, simply pointing out the wide variety of standards and the seemingly haphazard way in which they are applied.
