I was reading a post today in which the blogger kept referring to “the angry Right.” It occurred to me that I never see the media refer to the Left as angry, strange since that’s the left’s default position about everything.
The screaming, blood-colored headline on Drudge right now says:
SHOCK: MCCAIN VOLUNTEER ATTACKED AND MUTILATED IN PITTSBURGH
‘B’ CARVED INTO 20-YEAR OLD WOMAN’S FACE… DEVELOPING…
We don’t have the details yet, but if it should turn out that the “B” was for “Barack” and that the McCain volunteer was indeed attacked because of her political views, will any story mention the phenomenon of “the Angry Left”?
UPDATE: Drudge has changed the headline from red to black. Still no link to any details yet, though.
UPDATE 2: Jon, in the comments below, is skeptical. Others are too.
UPDATE 3: It was a hoax, and a pretty dumb one, too. Doing a backward “B” while looking in the mirror is a pretty basic mistake. Sheesh!
