It's all fun and games until somebody loses an eye

For some reason this morning, reading the headline, Gunmen attack Pakistani army headquarters; 10 dead, I was struck by just how ridiculous and child like the crazy right in the United States really is.

Remember in the heat of the August townhalls, all the over-the-top demagoguery about "armed resistance" to the government?

Now, I believe there are folks out there crazy enough to want to do things like that, but the notion that a Michelle Bachmann or Glenn Beck, or whoever has the stomach for armed revolution is pretty patently ridiculous. They wouldn't give up their jobs or families, or positions to go underground. They wouldn't be willing to risk county jail time, not to mention terrorist treatment in a supermax...

...which really makes the language of the summer all the more unforgivable.

...because there are people out there who are crazy enough to bomb and kill people, and Beck and Bachmann, and the rest were just egging them on.

  • That's usually the way Fascist operate. They stoke the fire, legitimate mob violence, redirect it into a national movement a reap the rewards of their megalomaniacal ways. Until the movement turns on them.

  • Michele Bachmann is a disgrace to the USA, MN, and the 6th. If you're interested in getting rid of Bachmann, support democratic candidate Dr. Maureen Reed! You can learn more about Maureen, and donate, at:

    Ummmm that "talk" came from the Loony Left. The Town Hall meetings are REAL Americans ANGRY about the government taking over yet another private industry to run into the ground.

    In one year Hope and Change will replace Hoax & Chains.

    It's over for the radical left in 2010
