    I see -zero- indication of either side doing so, but that's just me...

    Keith,
    I don't think either side controls the confrontation media. In fact, it's the other way around. The MSNBC's and the Fox's and the Limbaughs create the platform. As is said in the movie, "Build it and they will come."

    what cracks me up is when Fox (who I watch almost exclusively ) refer to the mainstream media as the bad guy....They (Fox) are part of the mainstream media, its not like they arent some mom/pop tv station...the media and their quest of the right to know, and freedom of the press, are nothing more than manipulative pot stirrers, who revel in building up heroes and stars only to enjoy tearing them down and covering the inquisition later on

    Maybe Don Henley was right ...."kick em when they're up, kick em when they're down "

    As much as I can't stand the guy, I think this is BS. He was pissed in a private meeting and said something that's not PC. Big deal!

    You are right, there are bigger fish to fry. However, this just goes to further show the double standard in our country. If you are a lefty, you can blatantly say anything you want with almost no consequences. If you happen to be a conservative, you can't even say something that could be construed as un PC. You can't even say your true feelings about something without backlash. How many times has something ridiculous been stretched by lefties to be racist, sexist, etc? All a dem has to say is 'oops' and it goes away...

    So does this mean you consider Rahm Emmanuel to be a right wing conservative?

    I find it telling that Sarah Palin, who claims to be a "political correctness hating" good old girl got her panties all in a wad over this.

    Those of you on POTUS who are counting on Palin in 2012 had better wake up and smell the coffee.
    What a joke!!

    Wait what? People out there wants Palin to run/win in 2012? Looking at her from outside the US...wow...

    Either way this is one of my favourite videos about the word "retard".
    It was about the NDSS having their panties in a bunch over a scene in Tropic Thunder. Either way, I think it holds a lot of truth...and humor.

    My 9yr old son corrected me when I called my computer partner in WII tennis retarded. I am glad he is more sensitive than I am.

    I would take issue with Emmanuel for far worse things than a misstatement.
    Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?
