"I tell people don't kill all the liberals. Leave enough so we can have two on every campus—living fossils—so we will never forget what these people stood for."

- Rush Limbaugh
Such reckless hate. What needs to be talked about, though, is to what extent these sentiments reflect the "conservatives" and the Republican party of today.

Eric Deamer

Making a joke about killing liberals, such as the (non-linked) example you quote and the Ann Coulter Al Qaeda should've bombed the New York Times comment, though tasteless and stupid, is still substantially less severe, IMO, then gloating over 4 grisly deaths that have actually happened. The former, though certainly objectionable, is meant to be hyperbole. The latter, expressing callousness over real deaths, is far worse.
