I need a shower

The Taliban tried to assasinate the second highest ranking person in our government. Once you have digested that fact, aren't these blog comments from the Huffington Post, perhaps the leading liberal blog, nice?
Better luck next time!

Sounds like a bullshit attempt. The VP is inside some sort of compound and they blow up a bomb at the front door? Christ, at least lob a few grenades INTO the compound.

I don't hold a blog proprietor personally responsible for all comments posted but, if your blog is going to be open for comments, there should be some minimal rules for civility. These comments fail by any standard.

P.S.: Commenters on conservative blogs are also guilty of over-the-top rhetoric. But other than Ann Coulter, I don't recall it reaching the level of hoping for the murder of fellow Americans with whom you disagree.
