coulter advocates assassination

Scrawny conservative bottle-blond shock-bimbo Ann Coulter suggested to a college crowd that poisoning Justice John Paul Stevens would be useful in banning abortion. She hurried to say she was joking.

It's a pretty sick joke. Especially when the topic is abortion, since anti-choice lunatics have been known to resort to violence, including bombing abortion clinics and assassinating abortion providers.

If Al Franken or Paul Begala had suggested that assassinating Clarence Thomas might help keep abortion legal, the Fox News/RNC crowd would be deploying its talking points and its paid conservative minions on a massive shock campaign to discredit them and smear everybody in the Democratic Party with their thought-crime. But Republican commentators can say whatever they want and it just gets treated as a little funny news story.

What liberal media?
