QotD: Double Standard Edition.

New Jovian Thunderbolt on what would have happened if the alleged White House shooter had ducked into a Tea Party rally rather than an Occupy Wall Street encampment:
Sarah Palin would still be in Gitmo.

Wait, does this mean that OWS just did us a huge favor by turning what could have been another convenient excuse to ratchet up the gun laws into a "lone gunman"?

I find it interesting that the Hippies of the "OWS Movement" are trying to claim this Nut Job as one of their own. Sounds to me that they, with their usual lack of thought, think it's OKAY to Assassinate the Anointed One.

Wonder if a DHS Fusion Center has been set up to "Monitor" the "OWS Hippies" yet?

Cleans 'em out a treat, though.

Calling the OWS idiots "hippies" is really unfair to hippies, they at least knew what they wanted. I wasn't alive in the 60s so I may be wrong, but I get the feeling that if LBJ had stopped the war - the vast majority of them would have considered that a victory and gone home. These OWS folks would go home if we did what, exactly?

Not even that. Just ending the draft would have eliminated all but the professional grievance mongers. And I suspect that doing something about student loans would have a similar effect now.

Forgave their student loans and gave them a lot of money and Nuked Israel.

I'm sure that would get rid of most of them.

Can we nuke NYC instead?

Tam, I have to disagree with my esteemed colleague T-bolt.

Sarah Palin would most certainly not be in Gitmo right now. That's accusing this administration of doing something that they haven't done, yet.

No, Palin would have been killed by a Predator drone.

Sarah Palin incarcerated in Gitmo?

Say what?

Somehow I get the impression that locking up Ms. Palin in Gitmo would be just a bit like locking up an Alaskan wolf in a barn full of Afghani sheep.

And if Sarah P. ever managed to overpower an armed guard, the results would almost certainly look like the aftermath of a Predator drone attack... only with a much higher body count.

I'm still trying to figure out how the mope got charged with attempted assassination of a building? Wasn't the Light Bringer thousands of miles away?

OBRW/G! I'm there, if I can get time off the Mall Force.

Now dammit, where did I put my little red beret...

Gerry: He still tried. Even if it wasn't a competent try.

He earned his upcoming prison sentence.
