113. Then show that outrage when it is posted by member of DU...
Edited on Fri Apr-04-08 12:44 PM by rasputin1952
that has a far deeper impact than this.

All over DU there are vicious posts by members, and people just walk on by...but if RR says something...the whole place goes ablaze.

If RR had said the exact same thing about Babs bush and Laura bush...the silence here would be deafening. This is "manufactured" to the extent of the targets, or else every time a spiteful nasty post were made, the same "outrage" should show.

That is why I find the whole thing somewhat spurious.
