Remember all that talk about toning down the violent rhetoric following the tragic shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) in January?
Such good intentions certainly don't apply when talking about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin as comedian Christopher Titus demonstrated this weekend at the Irvine Improv in Southern California (audio follows courtesy Daily Caller with partial transcript and commentary):
You know what man? I am, I am going to literally, if she gets elected president, I am going to hang out on the grassy knoll all the time, just loaded and ready, because you know what? It’s for my country. It’s for my country. If I've got to sacrifice myself, it’s for my country.
For those unfamiliar, Titus actually had a show bearing his name on Fox at the beginning of the last decade that was even nominated for an Emmy.
Now he makes crass jokes about killing a woman if she's elected president, and the audience thinks it's funny.
Readers are reminded how often we were told by liberal media members in January that such violent rhetoric only comes from the Right.
That's because such talk when aimed at conservatives is exempt from their rules of decency.
What a crock.
