I would tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control.
Can you imagine a major daily even publishing a column where a conservative called for the dragging death of Democratic leaders? Can you imagine a conservative pundit making that kind of call?
Do wonder if Democrats, particularly from the Hawkeye State, will, to borrow an expression, differentiate themselves from this mean-spirited man. Shouldn’t they be saying the simple truth, that no responsible newspaper should run a column with such language?
