We Could Be in for a Bad, Violent August

I've got a bad feeling about all this:


There are reports that rightwing lunatics brought guns to at least one healthcare event.

And there are reports that rightwing activists are urging that guns be brought to other healthcare events.

All of this is bad enough. But in addition, Glenn Beck urged his listeners not to resort to violence. Now we have that creepy grifter, Sarah Palin, calling for civility, after describing healthcare reform as "evil" and implying that Obama would euthanize her kid.

I don't believe them.
