Even nutcakes have limits

Posted By on Wed, Sep 30, 2009 at 11:10 AM

Newsmax, the ultra-right-website for loons, has finally found a limit -- it has taken down the work of a contributor who talked of a military coup to "resolve the Obama problem."

Pradines said Newsmax pulled the column after several reader complaints "to insure that this article was not misinterpreted."

"Newsmax strongly believes in the principles of Constitutional government," she added, "and would never advocate or insinuate any suggestion of an activity that would undermine our democracy or democratic institutions."

Besides, Perry "clearly stated that he was not advocating such a scenario but simply describing one," she wrote.
