The winger fixation with the idea of an attack on Sarah Palin is starting to creep me out. Erick Erickson (via Southern Beale):
Out there somewhere is someone who would love to kill Governor Palin. God forbid they do it. But you and I both know there is some crazy MSNBC watcher and Media Matters reader who even now is dreaming of doing so.
And should they try, we can be equally sure of something else. The left will be divided into two camps: (1) bitch deserved it and (2) not my fault.
It is unfortunate. I hope it never happens. But you and I both know the reality in which we live.
I want you to know you have my support. But please look into protection for your family. An attempt on you could bring the republic down.
It sure sounds like they’re hoping some attack will be made, whether because they fantasize about being victims or because they think it would be exciting to see if “the republic” would be brought down, I can’t say.
I would not be shocked if Palin eventually makes up some crazy story about an attempted attack on her, maybe along the lines of the Ross Perot story about how the Viet Cong tried to put a hit on him.
