    I would only care about this were Giffords herself insulted. Otherwise, I care about this not one bit.

    They'd care about it if Palin said it.

    Biden said it directly to Giffords "welcome to the cracked head club" I wonder how Gifford felt hearing that from the Vice President Of The USA, the man is a f-cking moron and the double standard in the Democrat Obama Media is disgusting.

    Well that's part of the equation and I agree. There was a dig implying insensitivity. I think the free pass claim is somewhat intact though. The lack of attention to what Biden said by the media and pundits is appropriate. It probably didn't phase Giffords so why should anyone else stick their nose int it? I can only imagine the uproar though if a Tea Partier or conservative said the same thing.

    Like when the tea-party congressman, Mike Kelly from PA, in closed committee, said they should "kick the ****" out of the Democrats?

    FWIW, Biden has had two craniotomies himself, which sort of explains what he was getting at.

    Yeah, I knew about his operations so his comments should only be looked at as well intentioned.

    I think it was an attempt at humor from someone who wanted to imply that he had had the same experience, brain surgery.
    As someone noted, if Giffords wasn't offended, neither should we.....

    Harry, I suggest you look up "Zipper Club," and compare it.

    People who survive terrible things, terrible illnesses, terrible operations, they DO consider themselves members of an elite club - and it does help them to talk to other people who've been through the same things.

    The rest of us can only imagine what they go through.

    I think Harry's main point is the double standard with which the media handles stories like this.

    The story has made the rounds on all the media outlets - liberal, conservative, right, left, democratic and republican.

    I see no double standard. Everyone's duly reported it - as if it were news - which is isn't.

    It is what it is, the faux outrage of the day... but somehow the righties need to get their depends in a bunch over something. Now that congress is on vacation, the choices have been cut by about 90%...

    I apologze for calling Biden names, I didn't know he had something wrong with his own head, isn't that a danger to the country if anything ever happend to Obama, did Obama know about Bidens head when he picked him to be VP.

    Remember what the Democrat Obama Media did to Palin when she said she could see Russia from her back yard...........:singing:

    Bidens head damage must be the reason for all this sh!t.

    They know damn right well thats what I meant but they ignore it then twist it just as they ignore the double standard in the left wing media.

    So far you have brought up Sarah twice in this thread, and you claim the left is infatuated with her.. I think you have pictures in your garage and basement of her, along with a box of tissues.

    Only if you also consider Herman Cain, John McCain, John Kennedy, FDR and Ronald Reagan as being or having been a "danger" to the country.

    All of them suffered from (or currently suffer) various chronic or acute illnesses.

    I use her because it's unbelievable the way the democrat media hangs on her every word and it was actually comical the way the bastards went throught her rubbish bags and her e-mail.

    Windbag Biden "hi gabby"
    Gabby "hi joe"
    Windbag Biden "welcome to the cracked head club"

    :rofl::rofl:
