It's not like "the issues" are even all that important anyway, don't kid yourself. It's all a stupid game meant to get everyone pissed off at some smoke and mirrors bull**** while the rich dudes in charge take your money and do whatever they please.

Yes, because she is currently an advocate for preventing teen pregnancy, so she is fair game. She made herself a public figure by choice.

If I turn on my television and am bombarded by your face every single time without looking for it, I hate you by default. That transcends any agenda, politics, celebrity, context. If you are there for an extended period of time (weeks/months/years!) and I can't escape seeing you once a day as I fumble to get to the stations I'm actually looking for...then you are subject to my scorn. It doesn't matter who you are. You could be a six year old with cerebral palsy trying to push for some charity. I don't care. If you're in my face, I hate you and will take pleasure in jokes made at your expense.

Where ya been? Put down those foggy nostalgia goggles. Rush Limbaugh once publicly referred to 14 year old Chelsea Clinton as the "white house dog". How about the attacks on Amy Carter, Billy Carter, Roger Clinton, Pat Nixon, etc, etc, etc...

This stuff has been going on since before the time of Lucius Junius Brutus and will continue long after your great, great, great, great, (Ad infinitum) children are dead.

P.S. If you thought the Palin/Toilet & Palin/Suicide images were going too far, you're really going to hate this...

That is why I could never figure out why Obama would not just slow it down a bit on the speeches and other executive decrees, pressers and other such photo ops. After a while people start to get tired of hearing about how bad things are in America , or about his plans for changing the world via making speeches. As a sidenote, he needs to lock Biden in the "secret location" and not let the press get to him--I can only take so much comedy.

I was already burned out on him before he was President, so I can't make an exception.

Yeah some of them would have... because they found it funny.

It might not be funny... but their intent could very well have been humour.

There could very well be ideological bias behind people who make jokes...
... but there definitely is a lot of ideological bias behind how people interpret those jokes.

Just keep in mind that your judgment is just as subjective as anyone else's, including mine.

There are reasons why doctors cannot operate on their own immediate family...

Only after she was eighteen. the fact still remains that she was originally attacked when she was a minor. Now, she is what you stated and fair game. But, at 17 nobody knew her intentions and she was shoved into the lime light of politics. The issue is. 17 was ok, so lets push it to 16 or 15... 14 which I'm about to address.

Lizard, i am against Limbuagh attacking Chelsea Clinton as well. I just didn't bring that one up. Way to jump to conclusions. I have always been against this kind of thing. You seem to think that just because I don't advocate attacking Sarah Palin or in short someone on the right of the political spectrum that I must have a double standard and think its fine when done to someone or a family member with a "D" next to their name. Nothing could be further from the truth and do I really need to include a history lesson of political attacks of the entire existance of US political **** flinging to address this?

Forget it, why am I arguing with a child. I hope you aren't driving.

Very well put sir. You make good points. I really can not 100 percent say its hateful but I seriously doubt its playful fun.

Cool.

That said I did find the one with a gun to her head -- probably not out of humour's sake. I mean it's possible, but I don't see it... there's no punchline.

The toilet one on the other hand had such a cornball pun it had to have been done out of humour.

But again, both of those points are just my observation.

I was simply pointing out that these kind of "attacks" have been gong on since the very first politician, and it's never going to change. If anybody chooses that kind of public life, then they and their families need to be prepared for the dark side of it. It's a simple fact that will never change despite any Utopian dreams one may have.

It's not a Left or Right issue.

P.S. I can almost guarantee that I was driving before you were born.
