      on the Left, beyond perhaps some intemperate bloggers, saying anything remotely comparable to "I-so-deserve-to-be-dragged-behind-a-pickup-truck” about anyone in public life.

      Until then I'll believe that violent ideation as political remedy is particularly a phenomenon of the Right.

      Guns don't kill people. People kill people. Monkeys kill people too, if they have guns.

        "Drudge? Aw, Drudge, somebody ought to wrap a strong Republican entrail around his neck and hoist him up about six feet in the air and watch him bounce." -- Liberal radio host, Mike Malloy
        There are plenty of others, mostly from liberal columnists and talkers.  And how could we forget Keith Olbermann, during the '08 primary, suggesting that someone should take Hillary Clinton into one of those meetings where two people go in to the room and only one comes out.  

        There's plenty of ugly stuff out there, and you'd probably be correct if you said that conservatives are responsible for more of it, but it can be found on all sides if you look for it.

        Declare the NRA a terrorist organization and make membership illegal. Hey! We did it to the Communist Party, and the NRA has led to the deaths of more of us than American Commies ever did. (I would also raze the organization’s headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but that’s optional.) Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony. If some people refused to give up their guns, that “prying the guns from their cold, dead hands” thing works for me.

        Then I would tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control. [emp added]
