Why do contards find murder so amusing?

Seriously...are their brains cross-wired or something?

Seriously? IMHO, they are srsly effed up. Period. The end.

I blog a lot and get various kinds of email, but I never saw any leftie "jokes" about killing W or anyone in his sorry Admin. If I had, I would not have thought it was even slightly amusing, and I would have NEVER sent it to someone else to snigger over.

I felt that W's "appointment" by the Supremes was nothing more or less than a bloodless coup (that's my OPINION), but even so, like the good citizen that I am, I "agreed" to see him as the POTUS and treat him as such.

Yes, I may have sniggered at some unflattering jokes made in his name, and I really couldn't stand to listen to the sneering frat-boy way that he presented himself.

But: make "jokes" about him being killed? NEVER!

There is this vast, huge false equivalency in right wingers minds that somehow they are "entitled" to make such jokes bc eeevul liebruls did "the same." Well, no, emphatically we did NOT.

So sick of their belligerent, unfounded, violent, obnoxious bull shit. They really are treasonous traiters (don't care about the legal definitions - on a visceral level, that's what they are).

They are seriously and radically bringing this country DOWN (with joy, glee and a passion seen only in tantrum throwing 3 year olds), and so-called "jokes" like this - which they eagerly and breathlessly push out there exhorting their dickheaded pals to forward again - are just sickening in the extreme.

I want MY country back! You know: the one that has adults behaving like adults and being respectful to everyone.

Was anyone else struck by the overwhelming selection of black people and women? There's one white male on the list - and he's also the most obscure one. (I doubt most Americans can even identify Harry Reid.)

Maybe it's just coincidence, but why THAT group of people? No Bill Clinton, Michael Moore, Joe Biden, Howard Dean, Al Franken, Al Gore, John Kerry - the obvious (and, except for Reid, the not-so-obvious) white male hate-targets are all conspicuously absent.

So is there an extra-special message of racial hatred and misogyny underlying this lynching fantasy - er, I mean, "terrorist plot"?

Or is this one of the rare times when I'm just imagining the right's racism and sexism?

I'll admit I saw jokes about George W. Bush being killed. They struck me as funny. But then, they were new to me at the time, even though they were probably also recycled.

I also found it a rather odd grouping of people. Rosie O'Donnell? I know she's a lesbian and all, but why her? There seems to be some weird mysogony mixed in w/the rampant racism.

I also didn't see any "let's kill W ha ha ha" jokes, and I wouldn't have found them funny. I did laugh at other jokes made at his expense, but they weren't violent.

This seems to tie in with the "Southern Rules," which one commenter pointed out had some veiled and not so veiled violent themes.

These people need to chill out (wishful thinking).

It's an odd cast of characters. I wonder if this dolt got Rosie O'Donnell mixed up with Nancy Pelosi? Clearly we're dealing with Putzville here.

I return to my earlier suggestion that RW humor is mostly wishful thinking: they tell jokes because they really, really wish these things would actually happen.

Re: Rosie o'Donnell, keep in mind that anyone on TV is part of the Hollywood liberal cabal and therefore to be stoned on the street.

Letterman cracked a few tasteless jokes about Sarah Palin's family, and there were months of angry shouts. Roman Polanski is arrested for a 30-year-old crime under strange circumstances, and when a few Hollywood types defend him, suddenly it's a sign of all liberals protecting pedophiles.

It's just another extension of turning politics into a black-and-white sports game.
