Who Is Lauren Bendik?

Specifically, she said: "I think Sarah Palin should get shot instead of Gifford!!!" Legal Insurrection has the screen cap and some harsh words for her. A Time For Choosing has more about her also. YouTube took down the old video but it's still available here.  Her public comment on Twitter is at about the 1:50 mark.  

What I would like to know is it even possible to 'move beyond' uncivil discourse in the political battleground arena discussions when people like Lauren Bendik has no problem making fun of George Bush ("He can read?") and openly wish Sarah Palin was shot?

Nah, who am I kidding.

It's sad because she sounds like she's has an interesting story. Jewish girl whose parents split when she was younger. And this[Under Perseverance]:

I’ve been through a lot in my life and I’ve overcome many obstacles. I was born with spina bifida, a defect in the spine. When I was born, it was uncertain if I would be able to walk or keep up academically with my classmates. Not only can I continue but I was a straight A student in high school and continue to do well at Pacific. I enjoy pushing myself and hope to continue exceeding the expectation of others and myself in the future.

It's a shame she is so bitter.

  1. My guess is she is actually a nice young lady with an interesting story who has been sold a bill of goods.

    When one is striving to be good it is natural to want to push back against evil. Since the left has sold Sarah Palin as evil incarnate a person deceived by this line can affirm their own goodness and battle "evil" simply by opposing her.

  2. She should blame Markos Moulitsas, one of the far-Left Democrat Agents of Alinsky who led her astray.

    Lay with dogs, little one, you'll eventually have to scratch.

  3. @ Datechguy: I agree.. She seems nice. With a very nice, vibrant smile..

    @Serr8d: I've seen now matter how often you point out to the other side where they have been just as guilty of violent rhetoric, it's countered with a "They do it too!" Dunno how you reply to a childish answer like that.
