    There is no comparison between Senator Robert F. Kennedy and former Governor Sarah Palin.

    Long time no read. Hope all is well. Actually liked her video, particularly after the vile attacks on her after the comments made in parts of the liberal media after the shootings. Also hard to do a study in contrast for two completely different tragedies. RFK, was right on and of course well spoken. Of course, I don’t think he would be in tow with the democrats of today either. Regardless, comparing these two speeches and the circumstances in which they were made is misleading and bordering on being socially irresponsible. Although any life lost in this manner is in my mind a tragedy, that alone simply does not make all tragedies the same and therefore should not be compared in the manner portrayed by your post. Although, interesting spin and very clever to try to tie these two completely different circumstances together for political benefit.
    In other news, as I first came back across your website I was expecting something different. Ironically, I was hoping your relentless attacks on the Bush presidency, his spending and warhawk tendancies would remain the same. However, evidently you have become blinded by Obamacare and the miserably failed / likely catastrophically failed foreign policy in the middle east and the roots of hypocrisy have settled upon the resting party of power. Maybe I need to search through your recent postings more thoroughly, but my first amateur glance proves my initial instincts correct. The numerous points and foundations for your hatred of all things Bush, have gone unnoticed in the current administration although present nonetheless.
