Frustrated by six years’ of steady reversals at the polls, the hardcore Left decided this week to foment a real coup de état: they want George W. Bush dead.
The Drudge Report has reported left-wing Air America Radio aired a spot on Monday threatening to assassinate President Bush for trying to reform Social Security. Network yacker Randi Rhodes played the following “humorous” radio drop during her afternoon drive show:
A spoiled child is telling us our Social Security isn’t safe anymore, so he is going to fix it for us. Well, here’s your answer, you ungrateful whelp: [audio sound of 4 gunshots being fired.] Just try it, you little bastard. [audio of gun being cocked].
Rhodes then giggled when the spot finished playing. Upon hearing a transcript, White House spokesman Scott McClellan reportedly called the incident “very inappropriate and over the line.”
This Wednesday, Rhodes offered a leftist apology – an expression of regret, all the while denying personal culpability and stating any wrongdoing is dwarfed by the sheer evil embodied by her political opponents [Click here to listen to part of Wednesday’s program.] She said:
If [the Secret Service] had to take two seconds out of their day to look into me, I apologize for that...But where is the apology when [conservatives] threaten judges from the Senate floor or from the House floor? Or where’s the investigation into Ann Coulter’s mouth?
