“Frank Rich tweets prison rape joke about former Va. Gov. Bob McDonnell,” Glenn Reynolds writes at Instapundit.

As Glenn adds, “If it weren’t about a Republican, it would cost him his job.” But which one? Rich, who had logged in three decades at the New York Times, is now simultaneously employed as a columnist at New York magazine, and as Twitchy notes, is an executive producer of Veep, the series starring former Seinfeld actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, for Time-Warner-CNN-HBO:

What is it about liberals and prison rape? Remember Bill Lockyer (Cal. Dem. AG)?

Yes, I do remember Bill Lockyer. My guess — liberals like for people to submit to the state, and for their opponents to be humiliated. So prison rape for Republicans is a twofer.

Sounds pretty Stalinist to me.

Although considering that in 2011, Rich was asking, “if you put a reloaded gun” up to Sarah Palin would she know who Bill Ayers was, perhaps today’s tweet means that Rich is toning his proposed violence down a notch.
