My brain is revolting at how ugly the above sentence is.
Yuck. I never wanted think about Joe Wilson again. But how comforting that it comes in the context of gun nuts having special feelings about owning a weapon with an insult to President Obama inscribed on the hardware.
Are there actual assassination fantasies being entertained? Fuck.
In other news of homicidal fun times, look at Tucson’s billboard for Rush Limbaugh.
I had a wingnut joke about taking me hunting with Dick Cheney once on this site. So, I stopped using my real name and nicknamed me writechic, because to me it wasn’t funny. But I poked the wingnut back by editing his post to say “I like wearing lacy, pink lingerie.”
It’s a natural transition in my mind: sinister to pink nighties on men. The dude went nuts on his site about me. 😯
A wealthy man has been arrested for threatening to kill a representative. The man does not want his trust fund taxed.
I mentioned in earlier comments about the black GOP official in Arizona who resigned because he doesn’t want to be murdered by Tea Partiers who keep threatening his life.
I’ve seen attempts to make a false equivalence about violent rhetoric. One Democrat was used yesterday to balance the volume of kill speech on the right. It’s absurd.
Here’s a little perspective from Melissa McEwan at Alternet:
There is no leftist equivalent to Glenn Beck, host of a long-running nationally syndicated radio show, former host of a show on CNN and current host of a show on Fox, best-selling author, DC rally organizer, and longtime user of eliminationist rhetoric, including equating universal healthcare to rape, joking about victims of forest fires being America-hating liberals, comparing Al Gore to Hitler, condoning the murder of Michael Moore, accusing Holocaust survivor George Soros of being a Nazi collaborator, joking about poisoning Nancy Pelosi, equating immigration reform with burning US citizens alive, publicly endorsing violent revolution, and winkingly telling his viewers not to get violent, all of which amounts to a speck on the tip of a very big iceberg.” -Melissa McEwan
It occurs to me that the whole “we’re fucking nuts and willing to take any measure to defeat you” approach works. Remember when Saddam Hussein, Kim Jong Il, and Ahmed Ahmadinejad were named as world lunatics? Hussein pleaded for help from the U.N. The other two?
My Korean and Persian are a little rusty, but I believe the Iranian and North Korean leaders’ response went something like, “Come and get us, America! We dare you! We are a couple of crazy mother fuckers, and we dare you.”
And then I saw Saddam Hussein hanged on youtube.
A friend sent me this link yesterday. It seems apropos:
