Quote of the Day

“Bad time to be a politician. Dibs on shooting/hanging the President.”

-- a commenter on the far-right website MinutemanNews.com, responding to an article about the problems leftists will have when/if they try to rescind the Second Amendment, as reported in Rick Perlstein's Nation article, “Stack Them In the Streets Like Cordwood”: The Gun Control Debate and Our Civic Life," Sept. 13, 2013. Some of the other coments, which Perlstein also quotes, are equally awful, with worse spelling. There were 420 comments in all, he says. Perlstein's research indicates that the site, which seems a fringe organization, actually draws almost as many readers as The Nation.
