If George W. Bush laughed at stuff like this being said about his political opponents . . . well . . . you know the rest:
I presume that it is safe to say that those who thought this kind of joke was funny or redeeming in any way, are simply cruel enough to wish death on their political opponents.
Which means, of course, that they should not be allowed anywhere near the levers of power. I don’t listen to Rush Limbaugh at all, but I would think that making jokes about his health and mortality ought to have been considered out of bounds. I guess, though, that some people just don’t possess regular, human sensibilities. They also don’t possess class.
