Gibson Nails It

Just got back from a short overnight trip to the Indiana State Fair. While trying to catch up on my reading, I came across John Gibson's commentary over at Fox News. Looks like the nuts on the far left smell blood in the water now that they took Lieberman down (or so they think):

The Khmer Rouge wing of the Democratic Party is making a bid for a complete takeover.

Today in a letter from multi-millionaire propagandist Michael Moore: an unveiled threat to any Democrat who ever supported the war in Iraq.

Moore says: "We will actively work to defeat each and every one of you who does not support an immediate end to this war."

The "Khmer Rouge" apt. I wish Michael Moore would stuff a Big Mac in his mouth and just leave it there.

When the war resolution vote took place in the U.S. Senate on October 11, 2002, 29 Democrats voted for it. And in the House, 42 Democrats voted for the war.

Moore continues in his letter: "Nearly every Democrat set to run for president in 2008 is responsible for this war. We are going to make sure they pay for that mistake. Payback time started last night."

Oh, they're so confident now. So sure that America agrees with them.

Moore included a direct threat to Hillary Clinton: "To Hillary, you will never make it through the Democratic primaries unless you start now by strongly opposing the war."

To any Democrat who continues to support the war Moore promises: "Your days in office are now numbered."

Almost comical, isn't it?

The Daily Kos — the left's Internet muscle operation — laid out plans for the next few days: Get Lieberman kicked off all committees, slime Lieberman by calling him a sore loser, get all Dems — including Bill Clinton — to back Lamont, and get any Lieberman supporters to publicly switch to Lamont.

What a gift this is going to be to the Republicans...

JASmius adds: Yeah, the Bushophobes smell blood in the water - their own. Their new strategy? To purge their party down to an extremist rump sect that will somehow still appeal to a broad enough cross-section of the American electorate to be nationally competitive. Which is kind of like signing an entire starting rotation of armless pitchers. Or a football offensive unit coming to the line of scrimmage and then all turning on their quarterback and beating him unconscious because he's not throwing long bombs on every down.

I've got lots more to say on this later. LOTS more.
