ANALYSIS/OPINION:

There’s nothing new in New Hampshire Democrat Keith Halloran’s death wish for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (“Democrat quits over Palin remark,” Politics, Friday). For decades, those on the left have used the supposedly emotive ploy from their large political playbook. Those among us who are onto their trickery notice it on the evening news. We see it made manifest right now when this president and certain House and Senate representatives speak.

When you reject leftists’ dogma, disagree with leftists over an issue, ask pointed questions based on irrefutable facts or disprove a position on their political agenda, they generally dissemble, become increasingly indignant and counter with a response that soon escalates into pure vitriol.

Ah, but if, at some point, you come around and agree with them on an issue, why, their faces and behavior suddenly undergo a sea change to smiling benevolence.
