A guide to using the concept of “death” in politics

Encouraging conversations about end-of-life issues before you’re in a coma and your estranged husband & his new girlfriend get to decide for you = “Death Panels.”

Telling your supporters to “reload,” saying “violent revolution is on the table,”  proposing “second amendment remedies” to political disagreements, and holding a fundraiser to shoot automatic weapons to “help remove Gabrielle Giffords from office” = “Hey!  Wha?  Why is everyone looking at us?”

    Actually, when Ron Paul came out in favor of guns and against the ADA, it occurred to me that we might have a whole new enforcement regime: “My friend Glock and I would like you to install a ramp. Now.” Quicker than a lawsuit!

    And for those of you keeping score: Yes, I just made a joke about a gun. I much prefer the rule of law to rule by libertarians with firearms, but strongly believe in the first amendment right to call bullshit.
