“Well, Senator [Ben Sasse], if you’re endorsing a peaceful transfer of power from this country to the Russians, then go fuck yourself.”
“Between 2002 and 2009, the leading terrorist groups in this country were the Republican Party, and the presidential administration of George W. Bush.”

“And if Sarah Palin whose Web site put and today scrubbed bull’s-eyes targets on 20 Representatives, including Gabby Giffords, does not repudiate her own part – however tangential – in amplifying violence and violent imagery in American politics, she must be dismissed from politics.

“What would you do, sir, if terrorists were killing 45,000 people every year in this country? Well, the current health care system, the insurance companies, and those who support them are doing just that….Because they die individually of disease and not disaster, [radio host] Neal Boortz and those who ape him in office and out, approve their deaths, all 45,000 of them — a year — in America. Remind me again, who are the terrorists?”
