A QUESTION OF HATE: Did Rush Limbaugh ever suggest that someone take President Clinton on a fishing trip and blow his brains out? I didn't think so.

Yesterday on her Air America radio show, Randi Rhodes said that's exactly what should be done to President Bush. Rhodes commented that Bush was like Fredo Corleone and that either Poppy or Jeb should take W. out for a fishing trip and blow him away.

After imitating the sound of gun going off Rhodes said, "Works for me." Nice.

Listen to the clip for yourself over at Cynical Nation. - T.

When it comes to regaining political power, clinton has shown the democratic party that honor, integrity, honesty is not needed. They learned their lesson well.

Perhaps someone should "forget" to bring Rhodes back from a fishing trip. i/expressions/rolleye.gif

Obviously liberal talk-radio isn't the only institution that is hoping that america loses and does'nt care how many people are killed in the process. The MSM is skating on thin ice.

YOU KNOW, sometimes I feel like maybe I'm too harsh in my charges of media bias. Then I read accounts like this one from Baghdad, by the Daily Telegraph's correspondent Toby Harnden:

The other day, while taking a break by the Al-Hamra Hotel pool, fringed with the usual cast of tattooed defence contractors, I was accosted by an American magazine journalist of serious accomplishment and impeccable liberal credentials.

She had been disturbed by my argument that Iraqis were better off than they had been under Saddam and I was now — there was no choice about this — going to have to justify my bizarre and dangerous views. I’ll spare you most of the details because you know the script — no WMD, no ‘imminent threat’ (though the point was to deal with Saddam before such a threat could emerge), a diversion from the hunt for bin Laden, enraging the Arab world. Etcetera.

But then she came to the point. Not only had she ‘known’ the Iraq war would fail but she considered it essential that it did so because this would ensure that the ‘evil’ George W. Bush would no longer be running her country. Her editors back on the East Coast were giggling, she said, over what a disaster Iraq had turned out to be. ‘Lots of us talk about how awful it would be if this worked out.’ Startled by her candour, I asked whether thousands more dead Iraqis would be a good thing.

She nodded and mumbled something about Bush needing to go. By this logic, I ventured, another September 11 on, say, September 11 would be perfect for pushing up John Kerry’s poll numbers. ‘Well, that’s different — that would be Americans,’ she said, haltingly. ‘I guess I’m a bit of an isolationist.’ That’s one way of putting it.

The moral degeneracy of these sentiments didn’t really hit me until later when I dined at the home of Abu Salah, a father of six who took over as the Daily Telegraph’s chief driver in Baghdad when his predecessor was killed a year ago.

Moral degeneracy, indeed. You hate to think that any American journalist could feel this way, but we've had other admissions of this sort in the past. To explain things in words of few syllables: It's wrong to root for your country's defeat. Especially when that defeat would mean the death of innocents. And surely it's worse still when it's merely for domestic political advantage.

Isn't it?

Actually I think many of the liberal biased media would love nothing more than to see the body count of American soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen grow as well. Human life is not near as important to them as is enforcing their liberal views on others. They would probably even consider it a justified sacrifice to offer up a few million Americans if it would insure that no republican would ever be president again. What a bunch of sick, pathetic, losers. i/expressions/face-icon-small-disgusted.gif

No doubt lrb. Just wander over to democraticunderground if you want to see the most lunatic fringe. I haven't checked out who if anyone advertised there, but they could care less how many americans die, since they figure america deserves any and everthing we get.
