How Low Can You Go

If anyone is inclined to spelunk the sewers of left-wing depravity you might, if your stomach can handle it, try a trip to a site called Metafilter which offers a thread of responses to the recent Guardian column by a man named Charlie Brooker which wistfully wonders where Lee Harvey Oswald and other assassins are now that they are "needed". Some samples of their thought:

I'm sure many people, world-wide, have wondered why no one's assassinated the moron yet.

These days, there are a large number of people, myself among them, who are emotionally inclined to think positively of a Bush assassination.

Throughout the debate, John Kerry, for his part, looks and sounds a bit like a haunted tree. But at least he's not a lying, sniggering, drink-driving, selfish, reckless, ignorant, dangerous, backward, drooling, twitching, blinking, mouse-faced little cheat.

It's a humorous column, in short, and if you can't ask for someone deeply unpopular to be assassinated for a punchline, then I weep for humanity.

All his assassination would mean is that I wouldn't have to wait another 30 or so years to piss on his grave.

These are the sort of folks John Kerry attracts. Nice people.
