All Richard Cohen's whining over what he calls the Digital Lynch Mob (see below) is just another iteration of a current RNC talking point: that the Left (defined as anyone who doesn't adore George Dubbya Bush) is "angry."
But it wasn't a left wing website that's selling the T-shirt pictured above. It wasn't a left-wing commentator who said that the only thing Timothy McVeigh did wrong is that he didn't murder the staff of the New York Times. There's your lynch mob, Mister Cohen.
Let me ask Mr. Cohen this: if you continuously spout the Republican line about the "Angry Left," without ever mentioning the literally murderous rage on the Right. then why should anyone regard you as anything BUT a Republican shill?
