Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post:

The danger of political violence in this country comes overwhelmingly from one direction — the right, not the left.

As for the Left’s dreams of domestic tranquility, I will await Eugene Robinson’s condemnation of the Bush-assassination fantasy film, Death of a President.
