#1 Because of all that icky free speech it is all our fault that these people attack and hate us. Got it.
Little fucking cowards.

#2 If we take the recent events in Egypt and Libya, the current administration's response, and the sycophantic media elements that refuse to hold this administration accountable, I'm not convinced that we aren't talking about an election-year Jump-the-SharkTM moment here.
Why do I say this? It's partially just gut feeling, to be honest. When I first read the State Department's statement regarding the protests in Egypt, I was shocked. In fact, I had to reread the statement several times before my brain would believe/accept what my eyes were saying. Did they really just condemn those who choose to exercise their right of free speech in this country? WTF is going on here? Are we seriously apologizing and making excuses for our American values because a bunch of religious zealots don't like what was said about them? Is this really happening right now? My gut tells me that this latest display of incompetency on behalf of this administration (and that's being nice given that one could argue this is simple anti-Americanism) is so beyond the pale that it cannot be ignored. Not by me. Not by anyone who loves this country and the values it stands for. The emperor with no clothes has been exposed for all to see and there's not enough spin to put the clothes back on no matter where it's coming from.
The other part of me says this is a Jump-the-SharkTM moment because I spoke to a close friend who spent 12 years on the Hill working for various members of Republican leadership and for the first time since the election kicked into gear, he feels like Obama's goose is finally cooked and Mitt is going to win the election.

#3 The religious left looks upon the whole of the Moslem world as a way to make war against Americans who don't belong to the religious left.

#5 How many people actually watch MSNBC? Is it like 47,000 or something? Aren't they irrelevant? Maybe Al Gore should buy them. Or Oprah Winfrey.

#6 MSNBC weasels masquerading as a news network. They all ought to be cleaning out some pig sty somewhere instead spooning out that garbage they pass off as news to willing Obama worshippers. The fact that we have free speech allows MSNBC to hawk this tripe.
