Right Wing Rhetoric of Purgation and Annihilation

Here is an example of right wing rhetoric of purgation and annihilation by CBS golf analyst David Feherty, as observed in Salon by writer Camille Paglia.

"From my own experience visiting the troops in the Middle East, I can tell you this, though: despite how the conflict has been portrayed by our glorious media, if you gave any U.S. soldier a gun with two bullets in it, and he found himself in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Osama bin Laden, there's a good chance that Nancy Pelosi would get shot twice, and Harry Reid and bin Laden would be strangled to death."
