I was shocked to read this afternoon that a shooting took place in Arkansas earlier of Democrat County Chairman Bill Gwatney, who died of his wounds. The lunatic who stormed the party headquarters in Little Rock was himself shot and killed after the horrific attack.
A blogger identified as "Lettuce" (I swear I am not making this up) writes:
"...because for some reason, conservatives love the idea of Democrats being shot. Oh, not all do. And those that publically call for it claim to just make a "joke" of it. Like those "Liberal Hunting Permit" that Dave Neiwart cited recently in a post about conservative "eliminationism". Neiwart collected a disturbing, but media-ignored list of major conservative voices calling for the death of Americans they disagree with. Here are a few:
Rush Limbaugh: "I tell people don't kill all the liberals. Leave enough so we can have two on every campus -- living fossils -- so we will never forget what these people stood for."
Stop the ACLU [post since removed]:
Rope + Tree + ACLU Lawyer = Pinata
Ann Coulter: "We need somebody to put rat poisoning in Justice Stevens' creme brulee. ... That's just a joke, for you in the media."
Melanie Morgan: "A great deal of good could be done by arresting Bill Keller having him lined up against the wall and shot."
Lee Rogers: "[T]he day will come when unpleasant things are going to happen to a bunch of stupid liberals and it's going to be very amusing to watch."
Bill O'Reilly: They ought to hang this Soros guy.
Let's toss "Lettuce" a helping hand. Please refer to the San Francisco Chronicle article that started this manufactured controversy, and Greg Sargent at the Horse's Mouth who fanned it. (Hint, the quote isn't even close to being accurate.)
Yes, I, Melanie Morgan, am the answer to everything. I know who kills people, who built the structures on Easter Island, and where Elvis lives these days - and it ain't in a graveyard.
The MoveOn.org and Democrat Underground self-righteous dopes need to get a life. And some facts, too.
Update: Stunningly, "Lettuce" appears to be a former MSM producer and editor for the Tribune Company's website. He now works in media relations and posts at MyDD.
I'll leave the snarky comments to the readers.
