Guess what? I don’t give a fuck if you say you’re “just kidding” now and that it was sarcasm. Sarah Palin wasn’t being serious about the crosshairs, right? They were “surveyor’s marks.” Because every surveyor knows not to “retreat” but to “reload” right? And Michele Bachmann was just kidding when she said she’s a “foreign correspondent behind enemy lines” in the US House and told her constituents to be “armed and dangerous.” For all we know, that was sarcasm.
Lest we forget, this is what Mr. Kerr says was sarcastic:

Sheriff Dupnik said yesterday in Arizona that free speech has consequences. Mr. Kerr, even if you were being sarcastic, I reserve the right to a.) seriously question what made you think that remark would be a good idea in the first place, and b.) feel no pity for you as the internet rightfully attacks what you said. You know, I’m sarcastic frequently, but I have never thought there was anything funny about implying someone deserved to get killed because said person is “a Jew”.
I’ll bet you’re sorry, but I have a feeling you’re sorry the internet “just doesn’t get your humor” or you’re sorry that of all the horrible comments on Palin’s page, yours got singled out. I don’t believe you’re actually sorry for the horrible thing you said if you think it was just “over the top.” John Boehner’s tears are “over the top.” What you said was disgusting.
