Party animal

From the e-mailbag:

The threat of violence that lurks in the Tea Party rhetoric has been nowhere more plainly revealed than in the D-G story yesterday (Page 1B) with its quote from an organizer of the Tea Party national tour who was passing through LR the day before. This guy was complaining how some KTHV early-morning interviewers had offended him by not sharing the anger that he and his group define themselves by. These interviewers, he said, were "so bright and chipper that I thought I'd have to beat one of them to death." Mull that one for a while. Consider that he was apparently trying to be funny, and then mull it a little more. Consider that a LR TV news anchor actually was beaten to death not long ago, and then mull the humor a little more still.

Yes. Bagger humor -- it's telling.
