Default A Moment of Comic Relief

As Roy noted, the wingnuts have been spending a lot of time trying to downplay or dismiss the violent rhetoric emanating from some of their comrades. False equivalence has been among the favored tactics ("Why didn't biasedliberallamestreamstaterunmedia report it when X got a threatening phone call, back in month Y???!?", etc.) But they've really reached up to touch bottom with one comparison it just occurred to me to check: Kenneth Gladney.

Yeah, try to tell me you didn't just say, "Who?"

==========

What made me think of 14-minute teabagger hero Kenneth? Oh, another Hateway Pundit antic, reported by va at Whiskey Fire (Hateway was part of the crowd that brought a coffin to the home of Rep. Russ Carnahan (D-Missouri)). And this, of course, led to the canonical post connecting Hateway and Kenneth. (And Russ Carnahan!)

And yeah, that Kenneth news link is almost certainly time-sensitive.

Almost as fleeting as that great new (as of last September, I mean) hub of teabagger rebellion, IAmKennethGladney.com.

(No, really. That used to be a thing.)
