Day By Day

It is finally beginning to dawn on some of the Lefties that their attacks on Sarah Palin and her family have crossed the bounds of acceptable behavior. Of course, that doesn't stop them from pursuing their insane goals by reprehensible means. Joseph Bottum over at First Things has plenty of examples.

Check out this Kossack:

I am prepared to do whatever is necessary to destroy the Republican Party as it exists today as well as everything it stands for.

If health insurance for all, an end to the Iraq War, an end to torture and illegal wiretapping, and a sane energy policy can be obtained at the price of destroying one teenage girl, her family, and the surrendering our self-respect I see that as a cheap trade.

Go talk about nobility of purpose to those 4,000+ dead American soldiers in Iraq.

Or this one:

Are you telling me you would not destroy the love a family holds for one another, even if it meant letting someone who would destroy the constitution become president?

None of use would use these tactics in a perfect world. It is not a perfect world. It is a fallen world. We have to judge costs and benefits, not moral absolutes. I know this is the way to fanaticism and destruction—believe me I do. But, when we face opponents such as the ones we face . . . what else is there for us to do?

What choice do we have? When faced with monsters, we have to be monstrous ourselves.

Read the whole thing here.

What they don't realize is that the Left has been monstrous for a long, long time.
