I’m as big a fan of Dana Loesch as I am any other conservative radio talk show host, which is to say not at all. Still, there are some things in life you don’t wish even on your worst enemy, and in my book being sent sick, grisly death threats is certainly one of those things.
I tend to think of Talking Points Memo as one of the few places on the intertubes that does political news from a partisan viewpoint reasonably well. Josh Marshall seems to have collected a group of writers who care about both nuance and the importance of proper research, and the site (usually) differentiates itself from its competitors by remaining surprisingly self-aware even as it fights hard for Team Blue. And so, I confess, I was not really expecting to see its readers react to the Loess death threats story the way they did.
The internet really is filled with terrible, terrible people.
