While driving this afternoon I

While driving this afternoon I listened to a liberal talk show on Minnesota’s biggest radio station, a longtime DFL bastion. The host agreed with a caller that John Ashcroft had murdered Mel Carnahan (while Carnahan was “way ahead” in the polls–not true, of course). The host then pulled out a list of liberal politicians who had died under “suspicious circumstances” (i.e, plane crashes), which the host attributed to “right wing death squads.” It will be interesting to see whether the Democratic Party disavows these nut-jobs–an increasingly important segment of the party–or whether it tolerates them and perhaps, in the end, allows them to take over the party. I’m still waiting for the first “mainstream” Democrat to disassociate himself from this rapidly-spreading variety of hate speech.
