Democrats on the Edge, Part 2

Last week I linked to a number of strange, inflammatory, and otherwise unhinged things said in recent days by Democrats.

Similar liberal behavior is going on online, at the Washington Post's blog comments, where liberal profanity led to the comments being shut down, and in Amazon's reader reviews. Michelle Malkin (above) has links to the liberal spamming of Fred Barnes' new book on George Bush.

Kate O'Beirne's new book has received similar attacks at Amazon, as Kathryn Jean Lopez describes for National Review.

These same people who try to shout down and drown out opposing points of view would be very happy if the "Fairness Doctrine" were re-instituted and voices such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity were silenced, because, as Rush sometimes says, they "can't compete in the marketplace of ideas."

I think Ed Morrissey of Captain's Quarters is exactly right: these are not the actions of people who have confidence in themselves.

One can't become "unhinged" if he weren't hinged in the first place.
