[H/t Heather]

Last night on his "Worst Person in the World" segment, Keith Olbermann drew our attentions to the ostensibly "humorous" prose stylings of one David Feherty, a CBS golf analyst, in D Magazine recently:

From my own experience visiting troops in the Middle East, I can tell you this, though: despite how the conflict has been portrayed by our glorious media, if you gave any soldier a gun with two bullets in it, and he found himself in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Osama bin Laden, there's a good chance that Nancy Pelosi would get shot twice, and Harry Reid and Osama bin Laden would be strangled to death.

As Olbermann says:

Wow. Manages to threaten by proxy the lives of the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the Majority Leader in the Senate, and smear the average soldier as a potential political assassin.

Yes, one wonders if all the right-wingers who got into an uproar over veterans being "smeared" as "potential terrorists" by Homeland Security over that bulletin about right-wing extremism will come running now to decry this actual insult to our nation's soldiers.

We won't be holding our breaths.

Feherty's most recent book, incidentally, is titled An Idiot For All Seasons. Indeed.

Meanwhile, might I suggest you all check out my new book? It might shed more light on this subject as well.

Jason Linkins has more.
