Out there somewhere is someone who would love to kill Governor Palin. God forbid they do it. But you and I both know there is some crazy MSNBC watcher and Media Matters reader who even now is dreaming of doing so.
And should they try, we can be equally sure of something else. The left will be divided into two camps: (1) bitch deserved it and (2) not my fault.
It is unfortunate. I hope it never happens. But you and I both know the reality in which we live. (from Red State, h/t Balloon Juice)
The prodigious capacity for projection by people on the Right would be comical if it weren't potentially so dangerous. What should frighten us is the vast number of wingers like Erickson who in their paranoidal "reality" decide they must defend themselves pre-emptively by taking out their "victimizers" before their victimizers take them out.
Isn't that the thinking that justified the invasion of Iraq?
