MICHAEL KINSLEY: The Insincere Push To Crush Rush. “These umbrage episodes that have become the principal narrative line of our politics are orgies of insincerity. Pols declare that they are distraught, offended, outraged by some stray remark by a political opponent, or judicial nominee, or radio talk-show host. They demand apology, firing, crucifixion.”
UPDATE: Link was bad before. Fixed now. Sorry! Plus, an image to go with it, as threatened earlier. If Obama’s going to spread the hate — which, given the close White House / Media Matters coordination that the Daily Caller uncovered, is what he’s doing — then he needs to take responsibility for the hatemongering that has already resulted in Limbaugh’s getting death threats. Hope is what he promised. Hate is what he’s delivering.
