Guy Who Likes Palin Arrested For weapons Violations

It's a damn good thing they got this potential terrorist now, before he did something really dangerous, like try to bomb a dance, or host a fundraiser.

I am gonna go out on a limb here, and suggest that the Palin fan who had a few weapons stashed away is gonna get far more MSM time than the HARVARD Professor who just killed three people.

"Palin fan?" Is that how you describe the idea that Girard "saw Sarah Palin, who he said is on a 'righteous "Mission from God,"' as the only figure capable of averting the destruction of society"?

And is his Palin fandom more pertinent to the issue of his arrest (as you seem to think it is) than the idea that "Girard, who pleaded not guilty at his arraignment, was 'preparing for domestic and political turmoil,' and feared martial law would soon be imposed," or that his advice to his wife was, "Don't talk to people, shoot them instead," and "it's fine to shoot people in the head because traitors deserve it"?

It would seem to a reasonable person that the problem was not that the guy was stockpiling weapons, but that he was discussing the (clearly insane) circumstances under which he was going to use them.

Also: she was not a "HARVARD Professor" (unless they moved HARVARD to Huntsville and renamed it the University of Alabama), so your "ivory-tower elitist" narrative takes a slight hit.

Other than all that, though, you're right on target, Tammy.

But she was a Harvard-miseducated professor!

Well, my goodness Doc, I am not sure where the "ivory tower elitist" thing comes in, when my intent was to point out that the self-admitted Socialist Harvard educated prof who killed three people is getting less attention in the press (at least here in SoCal) than some guy who maybe saw Sarah at some point???

Perhaps my sarcasm wasn't good enough...I think we're on the same side.

My apologies if I offended you!

Wait. What?

But she did go to Harvard. I'm going to assume that Doc is right for now, cause I like to give people the benefit of the doubt.

So that means that they actually did move Harvard to Huntsville and renamed it the University of Alabama.

That seems very unlikely.

It's much more likely that Bishop went to Harvard and that it just stayed in Cambridge.
