Let's face it. If you could find anything to complain about regarding last night's memorial for the victims in Tucson or about President Obama's speech, than you are nothing more than a petty, sad, partisan hack (the full text of the speech can be read here). You know, once in a while, you need to take of the tea party, Republican, conservative, liberal, Democrat hat and just be an American. Last night was one of those nights.
However, the perpetual outrage machine on the right is working overtime. Numerous conservative pundits and bloggers are complaining about the free t-shirts given to attendees at the speech. The t-shirts say "Together We Thrive, Tucson & America." Yeah, pretty controversial. Right-wing radio host and Palin confidant, Tammy Bruce called the event, "Massacre Rally Theater." What is it about people getting along, putting aside their political differences and acknowledging we are all Americans that makes conservatives so angry?
