Stupid blogger meets stupid terrorists
The left seems to think threats against a presidential candidate should be taken seriously even when it's obvious those people were too inept to actually kill anyone.And he could go on and on.
Meanwhile, we on the right are focused on the important things like Barack Obama's ties to a member of the long-defunct Weather Underground, a group too inept to actually kill anyone (except themselves).
Or the "Seas of David" guys who were too inept to kill anyone and, anyway, "had no weapons, no bombs, no expertise, and no money."
Update: Since the Confederate Yanker gives only a single example of how "bloggers pounced on the story," which doesn't amount to much,so I went looking for all the deranged lefties taking this threat too seriously. Most everything I found amounted to straight-forward reporting of what was being reported in the press. So, is the Yanker's suggestion of a lefty "assassination fantasy" which causes liberals like me to take these people too seriously just, you know, bullshit?
Here's an example of just how seriously people on the left are taking this story. You be the judge.
The MSNBC crew got out and rumbled through the deserted hotel lobby toward the bar, which, much to everyone’s dismay, was closed. What next?Update: David Neiwert points out that there are some (let's say) high-functioning tweakers out there...
As if on cue, Tammy Haddad, the ubiquitous whirlwind of a TV producer, burst through the hotel’s front door, said hello, hello, hello, and announced that she had major news about the hotel. “They got us in here with the white supremacists,” said Ms. Haddad.
For the next five minutes, she regaled the MSNBC pundits with a story, which would appear on the Newsweek Web site later that night, about the F.B.I. arresting several hotel guests for gun and methamphetamine possession. The men, with apparent ties to white supremacist groups, had maybe come to town to try and assassinate Senator Obama. During the arrest, one of the jittery dudes had jumped out of a window on the sixth floor!
