HuffPo genius who called for coup: It was satire, wingnuts

Uh huh. It’s the first satire in history with no discernible target. Here’s a sample of something he left in the comments to the original post that showcases his rip-roaring brand of fun-pokin’ hijinks:
I ask General Pace to do two things. One is to relieve the President of his command as Commander-In-Chief. The other is to place the President under military arrest. It is arguable as to the conflict between the Constitution and the Uniform Code Of Military Justice. One of the important legal ramifications of My Lai was the obligation to relieve a senior officer of his/her command in exceptional circumstances. If General Pace was performing a military imperative in a peaceful, non-threatening manner and simply informed Mr. Bush that he was being relieved of his military command, there would be no justification for the Secret Service to act as you suggest. Whatever the ultimate consequence, the impact of such a courageous and noble act on behalf of his nation, would be significant.
You know you’re dealing with the Big Funny when they toss in citations to the UCMJ. Hey, wanker: We’ve seen this show before and it’s no more convincing now than it was then. “Clown nose off, clown nose on, clown nose off…”
Exit question: Did he come up with this pathetic defense himself or did an embarrassed Arianna force it on him?
Update: I forgot about this. Like I said, we’ve seen this show before.
