Daily Kos Founder: I Support Tea Parties If They Stop Conservatives From 'Shooting People Up'

Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, hallowed in the political community as a Meet the Press panelist and Newsweek contributor, displayed his satirical side on Wednesday on his leftist blog the Daily Kos:

Dear Conservatives,

If having hilarious tea bagging parties keeps you guys from shooting people up, then I heartily endorse them.

Hugs and kisses,


Please compare this to the outrage liberals had over fellow Newsweek contributor Karl Rove when he cracked in 2005 that liberals saw 9/11 as an occasion for indictments and therapy. Newsweek's Washington Bureau Chief, Daniel Klaidman, complained at the time that Rove was trying to create "the sort of Republican fantasy of a liberal." Mr. Klaidman, any complaint now?
