Rep. Michelle Bachmann is a bit hyperbolic for my tastes, but when she says something along the lines of slitting wrists and swearing blood brotherhood she’s drawing from a long-established tradition in Western culture. Archaic, to be sure – but if a conservative politician can’t be archaic at times… we’ll demand that he or she be allowed to be, actually. But what it’s not is an invitation to a liberal radio commentator to openly wish for her suicide.
Note, by the way, that this sort of thing seems to happen disproportionately to female subjects of hard Leftist ire. People like Mr. Williams don’t really see people like Rep. Bachmann as being really people, you see.
