How disingenuous can the wingnut right get?

Pat Buchanan gets assaulted with some salad dressing by an alleged leftist, a few days after William Kristol gets hit in the face with a pie, and the rightwing punditariat is clucking "How soon until they start using guns?"

("Which, of course, is our job," Stephen Bainbridge continued silently and to himself.)

I await their joining Senator Lautenberg in condemning Tom Delay for essentially encouraging the Rapture Right to assassinate judges.

Every day we let these goddamned liars go unchallenged is another day they can pervert the American traditions of free speech. Let's meet them with so much "more speech" that they'll wish we were using pies.

Malkin's (the real one) post wasn't even unintentionally funny -- it was insane. Are pie-throwing liberals the ones who made it necessary for Michael Shiavo to hire personal security? The ones putting judge's faces on "Wanted" posters?

With some of these people, the "left=terrorists" rhetoric isn't just a useful political ploy. They're starting to believe their own bullshit.

I suppose that clown has already forgotten about the Oklahoma City bombing, the Olympic Park bombing, the assassinations of doctors by anti-abortion nuts, etc. etc.
