Fringe Attacks Coming Back to Haunt the Right?


If these people are so radical about their pro-life stance (on the ballot in Colorado) that they would let a mother die before sacrificing a fetus, or they would force a woman to bear a child conceived out of rape or incest, then this imagery is not about Obama so much as it’s a projection of their own blind apocalyptic vision.

Perhaps the rendering of Obama as the Angel of Death has a more political symbolism at this point, though.  Perhaps the tone and tenor of the right has become so extreme, the pendulum is starting to swing the other way.
