David Ehrenstein, see supra, has been excoriated in the blog-o-sphere for a comment he made on Crooks & Liars.com. The comment was about the Supremes decision to back hand-gun ownership rights in Washington D.C.
"If you see Justice Scalia anywhere near your house, shoot the motherfucker."
I tried to leave a comment, but as easy as that seems for other people I always have trouble. My comment on David's comment is:
1. That's not a threat, it's a rhetorical irony or something like that; and
2. That's not a comment a Liberal would make; the sentiment is Radical. Liberals and Conservatives prefer incremental change, and we can all see that that has gotten us nowhere.
