Subterranean No Dick Blues
From 2Millionth Web Log

It looks like Johnny Mac's latest designated whining scold, one John Murtagh, has a serious case of selective morality when it comes to violence in pursuit of political aims (via):
From 1999 to 2001, Mr. Murtagh served as a pro-bono lawyer for the Rev. John T. Murphy, a leader of a group of antiabortion protesters who spent years picketing outside Long Island Gynecological Services in Garden City, N.Y. Rev. Murphy ran a charity called "Save the Babies," records show.

According to a 1995 Nassau County, N.Y., court decision involving the clinic, the Nassau County Police Department was called to the premises at least 17 times in 1994 and 1995 to investigate reports of physical assault, harassment, bomb threats and in four cases, the firing of bullets into windows.

And, not surprisingly, the Wasilla Wonder is similarly afflicted.

You know, it's interesting to watch the rending of garments, gnashing of teeth, and other displays of what would be called extreme concern trolling if done online. These same people, not all that long ago, were worshipping at the altar of St. Ronald Reagan, who couldn't embrace certain domestic terrorists quickly enough...and for whom an ongoing effort has been made to 'close the books' and 'put the past behind us.'

It's unfortunate that questions won't--and can't--be asked of McCain and Palin regarding these domestic terrorists, because it would speak volumes every bit as significant as their rhetoric of late speaks to their shamelessness. Well, one can hope that a discussion can begin after the election, provided we're not all in the poor house thanks to economic policies Team McCain is rushing away from as fast as their aching, aging feet can hobble.
