Palin Puts Giffords in the Crosshairs
Her Opponents Campaign
1/14/11 Note: I have edited this post to remove an intemperate word of my own. The so-called "Tea Party" includes several organizations and people of a variety of conservative political beliefs. Some I would not hesitate to characterize as extremist, but many who identify themselves in general with the "Tea Party" movement do not qualify for that adjective.
[A totally unrelated tirade about grammar:
I hesitate to use "extremist" as an adjective in the above sentence for fear it will be taken as a noun. There are in the body politick a large percentage who do not realize that the plural of a noun ending in "-ist" should end in "-ists". One Methodist, two Methodists. One extremist, two extremists. This is a constant aggravation to me. How many times have you read a comment during the last ten years about a bunch of "terrorist". Aaaiiiiiiaiiiiiiii!
I feel better now.]
