Even "Lovelier"?

I have a general policy of ignoring nuts. That's why I haven't previously posted about Ann Coulter, about whom nothing but her name need generally be said to convey the lunacy.

That said, some people seem to find it worth discussing when leftwing nuts in other countries promote assassination of elected leaders.

Perhaps such people don't know about Ann Coulter's apparent suggestion that John Murtha is fit to be murdered by his own troops.

I can't help but wonder: Does it bother such people when rightwing nuts say such things? Do such people find it at all dismaying that mainstream media outlets give Coulter a platform to slander liberals? Or do such people make a stink only on those occasions when such people are overwhelmed by the horrors of supposed liberal bias?

I'm looking forward to hearing what such people think about Coulter's murderous suggestions and the continuing willingness of the supposedly liberal media to let her promote her books and her slander, lies and plagiarism.

Not sure who you were hoping to hear from, but I'll jump in.

An absolutely stupid comment by a nut case? Absolutely. I could also probably dig up a similar comment by Jeanine Garofolo, or the beloved Al Franken, but I won't bother. Pundits make stupid, outrageous comments all the time (here, a lame to say the least attempt at humor). But it is a magnitude of degree worse if it is not some random blowhard but rather a sitting legislator saying in the course of a serious interview that it would be morally justified for a suicide bomber to murder his country's leader, thereby giving comfort to any violent extremist loon who may actually take him up on the suggestion.

I couldn't find a link, but I also thought it was wrong when a Republican congressman suggested that President Clinton would not be safe if he visited that congressman's state (can't recall which one, except it was a southern), which is far short of what Galloway said since it was only an intimation of violence.

Maybe all that goes to show that what I'm truly offended by is threats on liberal chief executives.

kudos to you.

for what it's worth, the gop MOC you mention was not a congressman but rather Senator Jesse Helms. i don't recall hearing much indignity from his party at the time, but i may be mis-remembering.
