    The NY Times reports that the anti-Obama forces are being told by their pollsters they need to stop using the words "killer" or "killing" in their standard talking points. The pollsters warned them that with Gabby Giffords' again being at the top of the news it was not a time to be tied to anything having to do with death.

    Well to be honest, no politician should be using language that has violent undertones or barbarous symmetries. But try telling that to some of these people and they'll be the first ones to whine and bitch about being "silenced" and screaming about the First Amendment, when in reality we just want our elected officials to be more cautious and aware as to what they say in public.

    Some of these politicians speak no differently than a gangster rapper or common street thug. The slang is different, but the context is basically the same.

    The report was discussing that the pollsters told them to lay off labeling every Obama movement as some "killing" activity. Job-killing, economic recovery-killing, healthcare-killing, blah, blah, blah.
