NHGOP Denounces NH Dem Candidate's Palin Death Wish Dem NH House Candidate Wishes Gov. Palin Was On Sen. Stevens’ Fatal Plane Crash
CONCORD – The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today denounced Democrat NH House candidate Keith Halloran’s public death wish for former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The Party also called on Governor John Lynch and Congressional Candidate Ann McLane Kuster to personally denounce his hateful remarks and call for him to apologize to the Palin family.
In a Facebook post yesterday regarding the tragic plane crash that killed former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens, Halloran wrote, “Just wish Sarah and Levy [sic] were on board." Levi Johnston is the father of Governor Palin’s grandson (RedHampshire, 8/11).
“Mr. Halloran’s outrageous comments are a new low, even by the standards of the New Hampshire Democrat Party," said NHGOP Communications Director Ryan Williams. "His publicly stated death wish for Governor Palin and her family is abhorrent, and has no place in our public discourse. Governor Lynch and Ann McLane Kuster need to immediately denounce Mr. Halloran’s hateful remarks and demand that he personally apologize to the Palin family.”
Mr. Halloran served on the Rindge, NH planning board. He is running as a Democrat for State Representative this year in Cheshire County House District 7. He describes himself as “an active local citizen and supporter of NH Governor John Lynch” (Jaffrey, Rindge, Dublin Democrats Committee website). Mr. Halloran is also a prominent supporter of Second Congressional District Candidate Ann McLane Kuster.
Where the hell do you even start on this?
I guess I should start with the obligatory "where's the media on this story" rant. The reality is though that I am kind of busy and since that horse is dead I won't beat it anymore. They will ignore the story because she is not only a conservative but is the vile, evil Sarah Palin. So it's not only okay to wish her dead but is assumed to be a universally held opinion.
I could feign outrage but again, look at the title of the post. This is not new for a leftist. Look no further than past comments made about Palin, the death of Tony Snow, the fantasized death of Dick Chaney. Hell, they made a movie about George Bush being assassinated. Let's see someone do that about Obama...
I do have one question though for any tweeters here. Doesn't Twitter have a policy against this? Would this have been treated differently if it were Obama?
