The other day when the news came out, several people HERE said the same type of things.
I guess morality is NOTHING to some people.

Wishing death on anybody is disgusting and immoral
Even for political reasons
This is abhorrent

Someone said something that will have no consequence..."joking about the possibility of Sarah Palin's death". Big deal, really.
I'm glad it disgraced a party clown, that's cool'n all.. but in fairness, after a few horrifying minutes of listening to palin, imo it's not unreasonable to wish for death to make the pain stop.. your own, or hers..even the speakers.. just as long as it stops...lol..
Oh dang, I just "joked about the possibility", my short career in politics is over, I guess... doomed by the joke police.
Fallout over comments about Sarah Palin on Facebook has led to the resignation of a state representative and the withdrawal of a candidate. Democratic candidate for state representative Keith Halloran announced Thursday afternoon that he was withdrawing from his race, a day after he came under fire for making a comment on Facebook related to Palin. Halloran commented on the page of Republican Rep. D.J. Bettancourt, who posted about the death of former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens, who died Monday in a plane crash. In response to the post, Halloran wrote, "Just wish Sarah and Levy (sic) were on board," referring to Palin and Levi Johnston, the father of her grandson. Halloran at first called the criticism of his comment a "tempest in a tea party tea pot," but he later issued a statement on Facebook apologizing for the post. Thursday, he said he was withdrawing from the race for District 7. "After consulting with the secretary of state's office, I am withdrawing as an active candidate for the New Hampshire House," Halloran said in a written statement. "I urge registered voters to consider supporting and voting for the truly progressive candidates on the ballot on Sept. 14 and Nov. 2. Live Free and Move Forward."
Looking at the kids coming up I can more than guess that political discourse in the next 20 years will consist solely of: "nuhuh" and "yeahuh" and "i hope you die"
