The new civility

Keith Olbermann on his new Current TV show (yeah, he's back on the air, with about a fraction of his previous viewers) calls NY Rep. Peter King "un-American" and "an asshole."

MSNBC "Morning Joe" panelists refer to Tea Partiers as "terrorists," "crazy," and like "suicide bombers."

Huffington Post writer Peter Goodman likewise referred to, this time the whole GOP, as "terrorists."

MSNBC's Martin Bashir tells Speaker John Boehner to "go the f*** to sleep."

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer on the GOP: "I think we’re playing Russian roulette with the nation’s credit-worthiness, and unfortunately, all the chambers seem to be loaded on the House side. They want to shoot every bullet they have at the President.

The NY Times' Tom Friedman refers to the Tea Party as "the Hezbollah faction of the G.O.P."

Liberal pundit Bill Press fantasizes about Speaker John Boehner getting zapped by lightning.

Former Obama administration "green jobs czar" and still-Communist and 9/11 Truther Van Jones says that the GOP is "is putting a gun to the head of 310 million people, in regards to the current debate on the debt limit."

UPDATE: William Yeomans at Politico calls the Tea Party "full-blown terrorists."

Liberal pundit Margaret Carlson says the Tea Party is saying “Listen, we want to burn the place down. I mean, they’re not, they’ve strapped explosives to the Capitol ..."

So ... remind me again how is it that "progressives" got their collective panties in a bunch over a Sarah Palin political ad with targets indicating vulnerable Democratic politicians?

The next time these pathetic idiots raise such an issue, just meet them with the answer they deserve:

Now that Olbermann is on a premium cable channel he can and probably will be less restrained than he ever was on MSNBC, where at least he had some constraints. It took a superhuman effort on his part to act within those constraints, such as they were, now it will be Katy bar the door. The irony is he'll get more attention due to conservatives talking about him than he ever would due to the tiny fraction of ultra-libs that subscribe to Current.

Trying to post a CNN link with another prize of humanity calling Tea Partiers tyrants, but I'm not able to. Do you ban CNN links? :)

Darren: Might be a spam-killer issue. Which, unfortunately, I have no control over.

Usually those spam filters only knock out comments that include multiple links, so if Darren tried to post two or three links in one post, that probably is the issue. If its killing just one link that seems a little extreme. But then again, CNN might have an issue over tracking cookies and pop-up ads.
