None dare call it terrorism

A plane is deliberately flown into an office building in an apparent protest over the Internal Revenue Service.

By any (ir)rational definition, that sounds like terrorism to me. And while I actually think it is commendable that the cable news alarmists were initially careful with their words, it will be intriguing to me to see how the Obama is Soft on Terrorism Right deals with the suicide attack on one of the right's favorite bugbears.

Nope, it's not Osama and his boys. It's the Tim McVeigh wing of Terrorism, Inc. It will be fascinating to hear how Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh and the gang try to draw distinctions over the pilots of the flying bombs.

Do you think they will be calling to lock up his enablers in Gitmo? More likely, they'll try to link it to Obama's "softness."

What's most frightening is the how the hate that has consumed the right has morphed into violence on the homeland they profess to venerate.

Silly stuff.

The pilot has no connection to the Republican Party, The Tea Party or conservatism.

You just made it up because it pleased you to do so.

Didn't make up his anti-IRS screed. Last I look liberals loved to pay taxes. :-) Just because he may not have ben a member of either the GOP or a tea partier he certainly died by far right dogma.
