“Peace mom,” they call her:

The right-wingers who think nothing but the worst of Cindy Sheehan probably won’t change their minds after reading Peace Mom. In the book, which hits bookstores September 19, the antiwar icon admits she has fantasized about going back in time and killing the infant George W. Bush, thereby preventing the Iraq War.

Defining deviancy down: it’s no longer terribly outré to wish for Bush’s death or even to dramatize it. To be a truly elite opponent of the Bushitler, you’ve got to add a little spice.

Like saying you’d strangle him in his crib.

Nice job by the kids at Radar, too, in studiously excusing themselves from the Sheehan hate. She says she wants to kill Bush, and they pass it along as something objectionable uniquely to right-wingers. Ain’t it the truth, boys.

Speaking of Hitler and defining deviancy down, here’s how the moron in charge of Pennsylvania’s chapter of the AFL-CIO recently described Rick Santorum:

“Some see him as Hitler, ‘I’m right’ and ‘we have to go kill them’ and ‘the hell with the poor and the working class and we have to protect the rich,” the newspaper quoted George.

Adolf Hitler: class warrior. Too bad about that third criterion, too; without it, you know who’d be the spitting image of Hitler in George’s eyes?

Update: Ace says it’s time to start threatening some Democrats. I’m outraged!

Update: Texas Rainmaker reminds us of another one of Mother Sheehan’s threats.
