    That's not the same as not being progressive.  

    John McCain promised to follow Bin Laden to the gates of hell. Well, Senator... We're waiting!

    •  I just can't agree with this (8+ / 0-)

      “Bitch, do you want me to cut you?” while brandishing scissors is more than just politically incorrect. It's violent and frightening, and not the kind of behavior I think we ought to hold up as an example for others.

      Rosanne holds a lot of progressive positions, and rightfully deserves credit for them. But the kind of behavior described here is just bad, bad stuff in my opinion.

        Political correctness has completely gone overboard for many on the left.   It makes for a mirthless bunch, that can't laugh at a joke.   I heard this here recently:

        How many progressives does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

        THAT'S NOT FUNNY!

          is the humorless guy sitting in the corner who never smiles but really? If a woman with her size and her attitude comes at you with scissors threatening to kill you.. you'll take it kind of serious.
