At least one of them had sufficient shame to resign.
CONCORD, N.H.—Leaders from both political parties called on a Democratic candidate for New Hampshire's House to apologize Wednesday for posting a death wish for Sarah Palin on Facebook.
Republican state Rep. D.J. Bettencourt said Democrat Keith Halloran of Rindge was responding to Bettencourt's post Tuesday about the plane crash that killed former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens. Bettencourt said Halloran wrote: "Just wish Sarah and Levy were on board," an apparent reference to the former Alaska governor and her daughter's ex-boyfriend, Levi Johnston.
Man! Imagine if a Republican had said that about a member of the First Family! Or any prominent Democrat!
(CNN) - A New Hampshire state legislator resigned his office Thursday after becoming the second Democrat in as many days to speculate about Sarah Palin's death on Facebook.
State Rep. Timothy Horrigan made the remarks Wednesday night in a thread discussing the Alaska plane crash that killed former Sen. Ted Stevens.
"Well a dead Palin would be even more dangerous than a live one...she is all about her myth & if she was dead she couldn't commit any more gaffes," Horrigan wrote.
Horrigan was commenting on another post by a Democrat running for the state house, party activist Keith David Halloran, who found himself in hot water Wednesday after writing about the crash: "Just wish Sarah and Levy [sic] were on board."
Just gotta say that the Dems must be crapping their nappies in fear over Sarah Palin. Why else so much vitriol and hatred?
Stay classy, Democrats!
