Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

07/09/2005: Dumpster Diving

Via Unfogged, I see that the Hindrocket went dumpster diving at the Democratic Underground, which he says "represent the heart and soul of the left, and, arguably, of the Democratic Party," looking for responses to the July 7 terrorist attacks in London. He digs up this bit of paranoid nonsense:

I am so cynical... That all I can think is "how convenient" that this happened to take the light off Karl Rove.

I don't think anything is on the "up-and-up" anymore, not even terrorist attacks.

That's the worst thing Hindrocket could find at DU? Honestly, I don't think he was trying very hard.

I bet I can find something far worse from a right-wing site, within two clicks of Powerline. Let's see ... scroll down to the "Some of Our Favorites" portion of the Powerline blogroll ... click on the innocuous sounding "Little Green Footballs" ... click on the Thursday Evening Open Thread ... Ctrl-F, search for the word "nuke." Ah, so much delicious right-wing hate to choose from. Like this one, from a commenter who calls himself "savage_nation":

Islam needs to be utterly DESTROYED, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!

I want their cities set to the torch, I want their imams decapitated, I want their mosques flattened and the surrounding land salted. I want the Tower of London put back in business cutting off Muslim heads. I want to see Korans cast into burning piles in the center of town. I want their children taken away from them and the parents forcibly sterilized. I want Mecca and Medina vaporized by the biggest nuke we have. I want to see these scumbags put in front of a star chamber.

I want Islam over and done with.

I will NOT be a slave to the belief system of an agent of Satan.

The very heart and soul of the right, I'd say. And arguably, the Republican Party.
