But enough with the feigned indignation and the contrived sense of insult! We've just gone through a year when political leaders spoke at rallies where the President of the United States was called 'Hitler', a Nazi, a Socialist and where people called for his death and those same leaders - in the Republican Party said, 'You know, you can't control the people who come to these things...' Where was the indignation when legislators spoke at rallies where people carried signs like this?
No Chairman Steele, I'm not insulted by Reid's comparison. I'm insulted that your party spent the summer talking about the President's birth certificate, calling the public option socialism while frightening old people with non-existent threats to medicare and presenting no credible legislative alternative.
By the way, I missed the aggrieved sense of moral outrage and angst on behalf of black people when Senator Lamar Alexander made this ridiculous statement...
Your silence on these things doesn't insult me as an African-American. It insults me as an American.
