In the words of a Repug congressman from Nevada, Jim Gibbons:
"I say we tell those liberal, tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, hippie, tie-dyed liberals to go make their movies and their music and whine somewhere else," Gibbons said to another burst of applause ... "
He said that they are the same people who wanted to go to Iraq and become human shields for the enemy.
"I say it's just too damn bad we didn't buy them a ticket," Gibbons said.
Laughter rippled through the room, mingled with more applause.
For the whole sad story, read this article in The Elko Daily Free Press.
I guess the Repugs can haul out one of their sad cliches. "He was just joking. You liberals don't have a sense of humor!"
Of course, the same standard doesn't apply to Michael Moore, who has never advocated that his enemies be placed in the line of fire.
Is it any wonder I call them Repugs? If you don't want to be called a Repug, don't be repugnant.
Be safe, have fun, and be careful where you aim your double standard.
