Repug offended by fellow repug’s offensive comments

US Senator to Sarah Palin: "Quit scaring the public by lying, goddamn it." Alaska's US senator.

U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski on Tuesday told an Anchorage crowd that critics of health care reform aren't helping the debate by throwing out highly charged assertions not based in fact.

"It does us no good to incite fear in people by saying that there's these end-of-life provisions, these death panels," Murkowski, a Republican, said. "Quite honestly, I'm so offended at that terminology because it absolutely isn't (in the bill). There is no reason to gin up fear in the American public by saying things that are not included in the bill."
Oh, and if you still want to believe the mobs at these events are just concerned grassrootin’ citizens, think again:
When U.S. Sen. Mark Begich, a Democrat, gave a speech on health care Monday, sign-waving protesters gathered outside the Dena'ina center. The raucous crowds didn't come back to challenge Murkowski.
Of course they didn’t.
