Guardian Author Calls for Bush Assassination 
As if the Guardian hadn't embarrassed itself enough, a columnist is openly calling for the murder of the US President within its pages:

On November 2, the entire civilised world will be praying, praying Bush loses. And Sod's law dictates he'll probably win, thereby disproving the existence of God once and for all. The world will endure four more years of idiocy, arrogance and unwarranted bloodshed, with no benevolent deity to watch over and save us. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr - where are you now that we need you?

Now, I'm not convinced that the European world, having idly stood by and watched Srebrenica get sacked, having served as enablers and financiers for Saddam Hussein, having obstructed efforts to investigate mass graves in Iraq, having sold out the people of Darfur, having served as the cradle of the Holocaust, and having given us the term "soccer hooligan" can lay much of a claim to being 'civilized' of late.

They'll pay lip service to the values of the Enlightenment. Unless, of course, it obligates them to lift a finger.

Here we have a columnist who at once pays homage to 'the civilized world' while at the same time calling for a sniper's bullet.

Left, behold your son.
