VIOLENT RHETORIC ON SARAH PALIN FROM NEW YORK TIMES COLUMNIST CHARLES BLOW: “She’s like the ominous blob in the horror films: the more you shoot at it, the bigger and stronger it becomes.” Ann Althouse commented in December, “If a conservative columnist had come up with that image to describe a liberal politician, liberals would gasp and scold about the violence seething in the conservative brain.”

UPDATE: As I think about it, the mental process seems to be something like this:

Lefty: Sarah Palin and the Tea Party movement encourage hatred and violence!

Questioner: How do you know?

Lefty: Because whenever I think about them, I’m filled with hate and a desire to do harm!
