The call to “civil discourse” was never anything more than a call to censorship of the right.
The local “progressive” blog Two Cathedrals objected to my use of “hitmen.” I used it to describe the men of the left who are coming after Darrell Issa. Never mind that the liberal allies of these particular operatives have bragged that Averell “Ace” Smith is like Michael Corleone. The point is that liberals (the first to censor and the last to admit it) are on high metaphor alert after the Tuscon tragedy. In any event, after a few of us Rostrafarians ribbed Two Cathedrals for its fashionable hypersensitivity, we got this response: “Suggesting that hitmen, left/right/up/down, are coming after a congressperson seems in poor taste. An opinion.”
