An Ill Wind...

If you have been perusing other threads out in the hinterlands of West Blogovia or other alternative news sources, you have probably seen a version of the stories about the wingnut backlash against the New York Times and in particular Eric Licthblau and his writing partner James Risen for the June 23 article detailing more snooping into the private lives of Americans by the Bush Administration.

By now, I'm sure you know, W's been lookin' at yer bank book. And frankly, he's surprised you still have that much money at the end of the month... you know, you're clearly not giving enough to the war effort...

If you don't know what this is about, go read the article and come back... we'll be right here.

The eliminationist rhetoric began almost immediately with Maximum Leader's spittle-flecked attack on the Times, Vice President Big Time's ominous post-digestive rumblings, Tony Snow's barely literate spewage from the dais in the press room and on down to the blogs to Hugh Hewitt and Michelle Malkin and others who, in red shifting, brain bending ragegasms howled like wounded bears at the Times' disregard for Executive perogative.

This made it down to the level of the pissant followers. Literally... go back and look one more time at the Raw Story piece and you will see the name of the Freeperville poster being referenced: "Pissant." A little honesty among thieves?

Anyway, the eliminationist rhetoric has reached Red-Line. Ol' Doc Mojo fears that something really bad may be about to happen because of this. I don't know what... just a feeling.

Never forget though, that if and when it does, we told you this would someday happen if we let the wingnuts get too carried away with their antics and their increasingly poisonous and violent rhetoric sputum.

While I am concerned for the safety of Lichtblau and Risen and others at the Times -- because somewhere you know there's some crazy-ass "lone wolf" Timothy McVeigh wannabee in the "Rudolph's Roughnecks" battalion of the LightMyFart Oklahoma Army of God Militia who's taking this as marching orders -- I am more concerned that the wailing, weeping and gnashing of teeth might be getting under the skin of the West Wing and that they might feel it necessary to take some sort of action, and I don't just mean refusing to call on Times reporters at the gaggle, or seating them in steerage on Air Force One. I mean something big, perhaps out of Sparky Gonzalez' office.

And that's not going to be a good day for anybody...
