By the Barney Frank standard, proof continues to emerge that Democratic critics of Sarah Palin countenance name-calling. Don’t think the unhappy Massachusetts Democrat (or any Democrat for that matter) has “differentiated” himself from the angry signs that greeted the arrival of the former Alaska Governor in Eugene, Oregon:
To the woman carrying sign dubbing your burg a “Hate-Free Zone,” I wonder why you’re not faulting the person standing right behind you hoisting a “Hope She Chokes” Sign. Seems kind of hateful to wish death on someone.
But, I’m sure that irony escapes here because these leftists seem to think that hate comes from one side only.
Via Gateway Pundit who has more including this, these folks “need to concentrate more on spelling and less on indoctrination“.
UPDATE: Commenting on this picture, Ed Morrissey offers:
It’s a darned good thing that the person holding the sign that says, “Hope she chokes” (with the Obama logo a nice touch, by the way) is doing so in Eugene’s “hate-free zone.” Why, if someone had displayed a sign at a Tea Party rally that said something about our President choking, it would have been declared a symptom of the violence inherent in the conservative system, with apologies to Dennis the Peasant.
Pretty much sums it up.
