Local Right-Wing Blogger Wants Judge Callahan Dead?!?!

I just posted the item below on Judge Callahan's Voter ID decision, and checked out some of the other local views. It appears that at least one local blogger has gone off the deep end. Little Miss Chatterbox has posted an image of a wanted poster with the caption "Wanted Dead or Alive - Activist Judges". In case you miss the death threat, she generously provides crosshairs on the picture of the judge.

She doesn't explain how a judge ruling on a case he is paid to decide constitutes "activism", or why such "activism" justifies death threats, but I think the local right wing has hit a new low . . .

Dan, You so need to get a life and you are totally violating the name of your blog "Gone Mild". I wasn't threatening anyone. It was a humorous pic that I snagged from somewhere else. Since you lack a sense of humor and to remove all doubt I removed the pic and put the Democratic crybaby seal up in its place just for you. Thanks for all the traffic though by getting hysterical over it. Tony linked to me too and agreed that you were pushing it by accusing me of issuing death threats!! Sheesh!

Little Miss Chatterbox has posted on her blog: "Two of my political heroes are Ann Coulter and Peggy Noonan."

Need I say more?

LMC -

Irony kind of goes over your head, doesn't it?

I suspected that you didn't mean to be taken seriously, but, listen up now, DEATH THREATS ARE NOT FUNNY. I wasn't hysterical - I just don't really think that right-wingers gunning down judges is very good humor - it hasn't made me laugh one bit when it has happened in the past, and I still don't see the humor in it. Sorry.

Dan, I gather that "little miss chatterbox" doesn't think that the court should make ruling that affect elections. She must have hated Bush v Gore in 2000.

To be fair, it did say dead OR alive.

I only got one look at the poster, but I think the judge in question was Thurgood Marshall.

This person also has an anti-negativity, anti-pessimistic sign on her blog.
I guess that just applies to Democrats, not her.

Well, of course!

Democrats are always doom and gloomists.

Republicans are always upbeat, positive, we can do anything we want!

We can have all the oil, all the electricity, all the money, all of the domestic help we want! Because we're the Good Guys! God loves us!

Wow. What a surreal experience this has been; prowling around in the belly of the beast.

It's kinda like one of those cheap George Romero flicks. You know where you stumble into this big crowd of people thinking its a party or something, then they all turn around and you discover it's a mindless herd of brain eating zombies.

I don't think I found one, honest-to-god fact in any of the posts or comments I read.

Sends a shiver up my spine, it does.

LMC sounds like a nightmare. She's the one that needs to get a life---and a heart, soul, conscience, etc.
