No way! I’m totally in. Do I qualify automatically since I’m Irish?

David Corn is a New York City faggie who writes for the leftwing rag The Nation.

Saying, “to criticize the President is to encourage an assassin” has been used to silence critics since the LBJ era.

Looking at the heading, I can only shake my head and remember the fatuous statement by a Mr Welch. This was at the hearings involving Senator Joe McCarthy. The phony theatrical phrase was "Have you no shame". The left bought it hook line and sinker. It possibly shattered Joe in the public image. Cheap shot and rehearsed for effect. I ask again, have they no shame?.

For it was now over twenty years ago that the Oklahoma bombing occurred. McVeigh paid the ultimate penalty. The Clinton people came in quickly, knowing the anger and grief of the average citizen. They blamed Rush Limbaugh. I remember the salvo that Rush gave them over his radio program. One of the rare times that there was anger in his voice.

The rescue teams went on record with their support for Rush. Could people get any lower than that, to make capital over a tragedy. Then the same kind of people blamed an obscure individual for making a film that caused the murders at Benghazi, so that is par for the course.

Excuse the rant.

Wait. What? John Wilkes Booth and JFK? Did my history teacher get something backward or is there a conspiracy here?

(Yeah, conspiracy to commit idiocy on "news" television.)

Thanks Seizethecarp, related:

George W. Bush Reconsidered (Some perspective on the much-derided 43rd president)
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2974197/posts

[snip] At times the venom accorded Bush in popular culture reached absurd — and even sick — levels. Alfred A. Knopf, for example, infamously published Nicholson Baker’s Checkpoint, a pathetic riff on shooting Bush. Gabriel Range’s unhinged 2006 “docudrama,” The Death of a President, focused on an imagined assassination of President Bush (imagine the outcry should any filmmaker today update that topos). A sick Charlie Brooker op-ed in the Guardian called for another John Wilkes Booth or Lee Harvey Oswald to kill Bush. Jonathan Chait of The New Republic more or less permanently ruined his reputation by writing an adolescent rant on “the case for Bush hatred,” one that began creepily with “I hate President George W. Bush.” Try substituting another president’s name for Bush’s and see what the reaction of The New Republic would be. [/snip]

There was an article not too long ago (and if I had even an inkling where I’d post the link) and the jist was that “Obama’s” handlers were dismayed at how to handle him anymore because he had gone rogue. Basically he was drunk on his power and no longer following the playbook to the letter.

Texans didn’t kill JFK. a communist from the Big Easy who moved to the Soviet Union and returned did.

David Cornball (cornpone? cornhusk? corn something, but I don’t know what) has a hearing comprehension problem if his take-away from that statement is Rush issuing a call to assassinate Bronco Bambi.

The left usually exhibits projection on a massive scale.

It’s just one aspect of their insanity and lack of common sense.

I hope so. I’ll need someone to listen to on the short-wave.
