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