Conservative Columnist Got "Vicious And Threatening" Hate Mail For Saying Palin Unqualified Allow me to introduce myself. I am a traitor and an idiot. Also, my mother should have aborted me and left me in a dumpster, but since she didn't, I should "off" myself. Those are a few nuggets randomly selected from thousands of emails written in response to my column suggesting that Sarah Palin is out of her league and should step down. Who says public discourse hasn't deteriorated?

There's usually a correlation between hate mail like that and education. The worst of the hate mail usually involves bad spelling and grammar.

I agree janneth. It's almost like they fight harder and yell louder because they are trying to convince themselves as well as you and I.

It demonstrates the passion and insecurity of these people. They are wild.

I agree. What can be done about the extremists on both sides though? It is a free country...

This is a case in extremism. Not just politics. Professional athletes get this kind of stuff. You can make it partisan, no surprise there, but this is just a case of fanaticism. This happens in all races, religions, political ideologies, etc.

The article wasn't in any way personally damaging and was framed as an opinion piece. Its sad people have such blind faith, almost religious ferver, in a candidate that they would send this woman hate mail.

I can't imagine anybody writing something that would upset me so much as to send such vicious hate mail. Don't people have lives?

I would think that huge Palin supporters would be pro-life. Is there a new exception that I don't know about? No abortion except in cases where your child might grow up & disagree with me.

Their language skills aren't up to more fitting forms of disagreement.

I have never understood people who would threaten someone's life because they disagree with what they wrote.

I really respect this woman for telling her true opinion despite all this hoopla.
