How 'bout that "civility?"

Case in point: Far-lefty Gore Vidal (and talk-show gabber Joy Behar) on former President GW Bush:

"But I couldn't jump into the screen fast enough to kill him off. That's one murder that I missed not committing." [Joy] Behar didn't oppose his death wish. She responded first by chuckling and then say, "Well, it's too late anyway."

Ah yes. Nothing more "civil" like desiring the death of our former president!

Case in point: OPN (Obama Preferred Network) gabber Chris Matthews on the religious right here the US:

That's not fair. The group in this country that most resembles the Taliban, ironically, is the religious right.

Yeah, y'know -- the same religious right here at home that cuts people's heads off, beats the sh** out of women for things like getting raped or not covering up their heads sufficiently, and wants everyone dead that doesn't convert to their religion! That's happening all across the US, ain't it?

Case in point: New Democrat Pit Bull Alan Grayson refers to the GOP (and Fox News) as the "enemies of America and peace."

Case in point: Slate editor Jacob Weisberg says

that Fox News "stands to become the first network to actively try to kill its viewers" by spreading lies about vaccines, and is "un-American" for adopting the "Australian-British-continental model of politicized media."

And this last link (Reason) has a whole bevy of further examples:

Bill Press, syndicated columnist and former CNN host: "There's only one thing left: to rename the party for what it really stands for. It's no longer the Republican Party; it's the Hate America Party."

Eugene Robinson, Washington Post columnist: "Why, oh why, do conservatives hate America so? ... As Republican leaders -- except RNC Chairman Michael Steele -- are beginning to realize, "I'm With the Taliban Against America" is not likely to be a winning slogan."

CNN Headline News host Joy Behar: Guest Richard Belzer: "We see, you know, they`re cheering when we don`t get the Olympics and - and demeaning the Nobel Prize" ... Joy Behar: "Right, which is so un-American." (Yeah, Belzer? Well, you only have one nut, a-hole. -- ed.)

MSNBC's host Ed Schultz: "This attack on President Obama trying to get the Olympics is about the most un-American thing I think I've ever seen."

Radio host Cynthia Hardy on MSNBC's Hardball: "So [with the case of Rep. Joe Wilson] what you get is this blatant disregard for the office of the presidency, which is extremely un-American."

MSNBC's host Ed Schultz: "Rush must have been popping a few too many pills that particular day. Turning a hopeful message about the resiliency of Americans into a partisan attack. That's un-American 'Psycho Talk,' which is par for the course."

Blogger Steve Clemons, appearing on MSNBC: "Jesse Helms of North Carolina was chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for many years. And many of these folks that have come into their own today, particularly in the Bush administration, were essentially tutored by Helms to bring, you know, somewhat of a 'Fortress America' attitude to the comments, which are, I think, quite unpatriotic."

CNN Headline News host Joy Behar: "Now why don`t you figure that this is a little unpatriotic for [Palin] to go to Hong Kong and badmouth the president of the United States? At the very least it's disrespectful."

Newsweek's Jonathan Alter, appearing on MSNBC: "But they're trying to delegitimize him in any way they can, be as disrespectful, not just to him but to the office as they can. And to my mind, to be actually, what I would call unpatriotic in their approach."

MSNBC host Keith Olbermann: "How are Democrats, anything but at best -- I`ll use this combination -- irresponsible at worst, unpatriotic for giving that party more say than utterly necessary than what they have already in many amendments of this bill in health care reform."

Remember the good old days when dissent was the "highest form of patriotism?" And more recently, remember when liberals/Democrats pleaded for a more "civil" political discourse?

Just four words come to mind: You're full of sh**."
