Tasteless T's

Yesterday, Matt Drudge had a link to a T-shirt being sold on the Cafe Press Web site that had emblazoned on it a message suggesting that Texas congressman Tom DeLay should commit suicide. Today, Michelle Malkin did some searching on the Cafe Press site (they've since removed the DeLay "suicide" shirt) and turned up quite a few hate-filled, anti-Bush products that, if I were a member of the Secret Service, I would consider threatening to our commander in chief.

It takes a . . . sick and twisted mind to come up with stuff like this, but many in our society think it's funny. I guess that in our growing culture of death, publicly suggesting that someone should be killed, including the president of the United States, has become nothing more than a joke.

Regarding Malkin's article on the "liberal left" (a term I have to never understood any more than whatever a "christian right" label is supposed to mean) and CafePress, curious as to what people would say to this product on a Republican CafePress created site:

A product that encourages people to shoot at a past President? I guess one can make a distinction that it's for toy guns or darts, but at what point do you draw the line when the message is about taking aim at a U.S. President, Senator or Representative, past or present?

It's tasteless and exeption to the rule...but put that with the recent pie-ings. . .and let's not forget Alec Baldwins, "Stone Henry Hyde!" rant. . .Howard Deans "Republicans are Evil!". . .I'm sorry. . .the mainstream Left is not longer acting reasonably.
