Liberal Hate & Hypocrisy Two-fer in "10 reasons not to kill Bush"!

Say hello to Jennifer McBride.

Jen wrote what I'm sure her indoctrination officers, er, teachers thought was a perect piece for the Oregon Daily Emerald (University of Oregon) called "10 reasons not to kill Bush" which includes:

8) Jeb Bush's popularity would skyrocket. He would undoubtedly win the Republican nomination and then the election in 2008. With the Supreme Court full of near-zombies, I would prefer a different man to pick the people who are going to strangle us with laws.

So far, this isn't anything that a Randi Rhodes or Al Franken listener would consider to be anything other than too kind to Dubya, but for some reason, Jen has to try to pull the Fericito (awful SNL character) stunt of saying, "I was kidding!" by tacking on this insincere bit....

In all seriousness, I don't hate President Bush. I dislike a lot of his administration's choices, but I think he's a good man doing a difficult job. As a leader, you're always going to be hated. I am too often shocked by the vitriolic repulsion many people feel for our leader and America in general, especially because the loathing is often poorly informed. I've met people on this campus who see America as the worst human rights abuser in the world (unlike the angelic paradise of Cambodia) and people who sway liberal not because they actually know anything about issues but because it's popular.

Liberalism has to be more than a college fad or a collection of loudmouths whose idiotic comments stir headlines. The rabid dislike some people feel for a man they've never even met makes me ashamed to be a Democrat.

After 10 hate-filled bon mots, NOW she says that extreme rhetoric makes her ashamed?!?!? Um, Jen, did you read what YOU wrote before?

If you saw the episode clocking colleges on "Penn & Teller: Bullsh*t!", you know that Jen here is who they were talking about.
