Garbled Gift List

A friend's sister has two teenaged sons. She told them she wanted a five and a half quart stock pot for Christmas. They gave her two frying pans.

"Targeting" Politicians: Lessons by Sarah Palin

How's this for a great idea? An election is coming up and there are certain individuals you and your kind don't want to see re-elected. You want to communicate that idea to as many others as possible. How will you get their attention? How about setting up a map with the location of each of these undesirables? Maps use symbols to indicate information. What symbol will be most dramatic to target these politicians you want to see defeated? Oh, how about cross hairs? As in gun cross hairs. That should get the idea out.

And while you are targeting some politicians in this way, support your candidate who uses these lines:

Get on Target for Victory in November. Help remove Gabrielle Giffords from office. Shoot a fully automatic M16 with Jessie Kelly.

Does this country need a leader who targets her opponents by using maps with symbols of implied violence? It seems to me that there is enough hate and violence running amok in this country. We don't don't need leaders encouraging more of the same.

I seriously question the judgment of a person involved in the above situations and am appalled that anyone would consider her capable of leading this country.

I am, of course, referring to Sarah Palin.
