Yes…many major Newspapers ran with the Bear cub story…

What the biased Media failed to print was the follow-up and the results of the investigation.

Police in NC: Dead bear under Obama signs a prank
The Associated Press
Article Launched: 10/21/2008 05:22:33 PM PDT


CULLOWHEE, N.C.—Authorities said Tuesday that a student prank, not a political statement, was the motivation for dumping a dead bear cub draped in Barack Obama signs on a North Carolina campus earlier this week.
Seven Western Carolina University students were involved, and possible charges were being discussed with the local prosecutor, said Campus Police Chief Tom Johnson. Police did not release the students' names.
The students told authorities they took political signs at random to cover the bear's wound and prevent blood from spilling into the bed of the truck they were driving.
They discovered a carcass of the cub, which had been shot in the head, while camping over the weekend and brought it back to a gathering at an apartment near campus Sunday night, according to a statement from the school.
It was during that gathering, officials said, that a student suggested placing the bear at the base of a statue at the main entrance to the campus.
Maintenance workers found the bear cub's body early Monday morning near the school's entrance.
"I am pleased to hear that this situation appears to be a stupid prank," Western Carolina chancellor John W. Bardo said.

It is true that there are “stupid fucks” on both sides…but liberals in general are far more radical than conservatives, far more HATEFUL and 3 to 5 times more likely to act out on this RAGE.

Yet MORE gunfire from the "Party of Compassion." What amazes me most is the complete and total hypocrisy of it all.

So, why didn't the students remove the signs after placing the bear by the statue?

So, because it wasn't a political statement the kids don't get into trouble or face any discipline, maybe expulsion? Yeah, I'd make up a story too if that was the case. Lord knows I did it more than once to get out of trouble in college.

I found this to be interesting reading….

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/co ... 00002.html

Sorry, I cannot help myself. Some of you should reread grasking’s article and examine your reactions to the “Obama” Bear story…
Read false story…read facts refuting false story…deny facts…continue with false belief… parallels very nicely. I thought that the article concluded that such foolishness of thought was mostly confined to conservatives? :lol:



From the New York Post

A woman campaigning for John McCain in Pittsburgh claims she was mugged by a knife-wielding man who then "carved the letter 'B' into her face" after spotting a McCain bumper sticker on her car, police said yesterday.

Exactly...if anyone really believes this was a case of harmless, youthful fun I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you.

“In a paper approaching publication, Nyhan, a PhD student at Duke University, and Reifler, at Georgia State University, suggest that Republicans might be especially prone to the backfire effect because conservatives may have more rigid views than liberals: Upon hearing a refutation, conservatives might "argue back" against the refutation in their minds, thereby strengthening their belief in the misinformation. Nyhan and Reifler did not see the same "backfire effect" when liberals were given misinformation and a refutation about the Bush administration's stance on stem cell research.”

Perhaps we should contact them with this example??

Risking the appearance of arrogance by quoting myself...

This one has turned out to be a hoax...Something was a bit ‘off’ when it first came over the wire…let us hope that she gets some help…

A paper approaching publications...by a PhD student....has it been accepted, or just submitted...and by a PhD student..is this his first paper, in the middle of his studies or at the end...and it did say "SUGGEST" ..

It's too bad McCain's campaign didn't show the same restraint as you.
