I include this cartoon because it reflects the national standard on this issue. There are hundreds of these cartoons and the mainstream media talking heads go on and on about it. They take two completely different things and equate them so they don’t lose any more viewers to Fox News than they already have.
“(Romney) is going to let the big banks once again write their own rules, unchain Wall Street. He is going to put y’all back in chains.” VP Joe Biden
There is nothing equivocal or the same about one person denying that women can get pregnant from being raped and another confusing the word “shackled” with “chains.” Biden was working a play on words of the GOP who had use the term SHACKLED to decry what Obama has done to Wall Street, Bankers and Free Markets. Had Biden used the word SHACKLED the GOP could not have jumped on the gaff without pointing out what hypocritical bastards they are. A gaff, especially in the light of tolerance, fairness, freedom, liberty and compassion is far different than a lie drooling in ignorance, intolerance and denial of liberty and freedom.
