What digby & Ed said ...

digby: Lock And Load
Such funny guys, especially with the death threats and all:

Congressional District 11 GOP candidate Brad Goehring is drawing fire for his confrontational Facebook statement today:

“If I could issue hunting permits, I would officially declare today opening day for liberals. The season would extend through November 2 and have no limits on how many taken as we desperately need to “thin” the herd.”

He later said he meant to "thin the herd" with votes, not bullets and that he just hit the send button to early and then just left it there because he didn't think anyone would take it seriously. That's nice.

But the truth is that this is a very old joke, which I'm sure this numbskull has seen:

Here is the story of some of these adorable jokes, but the first "Liberal Hunting Permit" shown above has been around for years. These are the kind of things they sell CPAC every year. It's perfectly common right wing rhetoric.
C&L: Bay Buchanan Says Obama has 'Dummied-Down' Supreme Court After Calling Palin Qualified to be President

Ed Schultz takes a well-deserved whack at Bay Buchanan for saying that President Obama has "dummied-down" the Supreme Court with his pick of the former dean of Harvard Law School Elena Kagan -- especially after she said this about her brother Pat's girlfriend Sarah McQuitter, right after McCain selected her to be his choice for Vice President.

Buchanan: John McCain has made a remarkable decision. It was quite... look... in fact it's brilliant. She has one accomplishment after another, all of which are very much on a president...

King: So you have no concerns about her being president.

Buchanan: Not only am I not concerned. She is extraordinarily qualified.

There are plenty of reasonable objections one might have to Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court. Implying she's dumb isn't one of them. Ed, when you guys get her hack brother to take his cot out of the MSNBC studios (where I suspect he lives other, than his weekly hike over to the PBS studio to scream at Eleanor Clift), you'll have some room to talk about CNN.
