Before the election, WorldNutDaily columnist and Faux News guest Erik Rush--the guy who started the feeding frenzy over Jeremiah Wright--suggested that if Romney won, one of the first things on the agenda should have been bringing Democrats and media figures up on treason charges. Well, believe it or not, Rush has penned something even more unhinged than that. In a column for Canada Free Press--the Canadian equivalent of WorldNutDaily--Rush suggests that Harry Reid ought to be dragged to death behind a truck. No, I'm not kidding.
As the machinations of the Obama administration (punctuated by the President’s smug self-assuredness) and the impotent Republican leadership are given center stage, the hows and whys of our arrival here are not being discussed at all. Senate Majority Leader Harry “I-so-deserve-to-be-dragged-behind-a-pickup-truck” Reid likens House Speaker John Boehner to a “dictator,” and the surreal character of this utterance in the face of America’s current predicament should be what the press is covering, but they’re operating in a slightly different modality right now.Can you imagine what would happen if Lawrence O'Donnell or Rachel Maddow suggested that Boehner deserved to be dragged to death? They'd probably be fired while their shows were still on the air.
