Santorum v. Reagan

“I fight very strongly against libertarian influence within the Republican Party and the conservative movement. I don’t think the libertarians have it right when it comes to what the Constitution’s all about. I don’t think they have it right as to what our history is.”

Rick Santorum

“I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. I think conservatism is really a misnomer, just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals . . . The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom, and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is.”

Ronald Reagan

If Palin is responsible for the AZ shooting, is Jody Foster responsible for the shooting of Ronald Reagan?

The quality and tenor of political discourse is a fine subject to discuss.

But to suggest it had any connection with the Arizona shootings is akin to suggesting Jody Foster had something to do with the shooting of Ronald Reagan.
