Have You No Sense of Decency?

"The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama Bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States."

-Michael Scheuer

Isn't that something? Michael Scheuer, along with other neocons and wingnuts care about our country soooo much, they would prefer to have Osama Bin Laden, Mr. Wanted Dead or Alive, the man wanted for the 9/11 attacks, they'd prefer to have him commit another attack, possibly killing thousands of Americans in the process, just to further their warped, twisted agenda.

These are the 'Country First' people. These are the people with 'Support the Troops' magnets on their cars. These are the Birthers, the Palin supporters, the Joe the Plumber fans.These are the people that wanted to bomb Iran before they wanted to save Iran's tainted election in the name of democracy.

Now correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think any other, ANY OTHER talk show/news show host would allow a statement like that to go unchallenged, let alone agree with it. When does the hysteria end? When does Glenn Beck realize what's over the top? When does he realize what's over the line and what stops being useful discourse?

I know these are all rhetorical questions, because scumbags like Glenn Beck, and Neil Boortz, and G. Gordon Liddy and Michael Savage don't care about decency. Rats like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity worship the Almighty Dollar and could care less what they read off their faxed talking points. To them, it's like a little kid armed with a magnifying glass and watching the reaction of the anthill population after causing a little havoc. They're above it all. Whether they believe in their own bullshit or not, it doesn't affect them.

When do network executives realize it's NOT okay to yell fire in a crowded movie house?

I have asked the same question several times since last year. I asked my daughter, who is a faithful watcher of Fox how they, Hannity and the rest of them could go on day after day like they do telling lies and saying the things they do, and her answer was that it was no worse than what people on the left did to Bush.

I tried to point out to her that was not an entire network television station which was promoting violence in some instances. The only place I could think of she was talking about would be maybe DU or something.. but still that's not the same.

My word verification is bedlem..yeah not spelled correctly but

Meanwhile on the other end of the broadcast spectrum, we have Stephen Colbert advising viewers to deny food to that Rep. Cynthia Davis -- the one who opposes free school lunches for poor children because "hunger is a positive motivator." Here's the link to the HuffPost story:
