THE PERSECUTION AND ASSASSINATION OF SARAH PALIN AS PERFORMED BY THE INMATES AT THE CATO INSTITUTE UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE REVEREND SUN MYUNG MOON. Lawyers, Guns & Money informs me that the Washington Times has gone Sarah Palin's blood libel malarkey one better, declaring that recent criticism of La Palin is "simply the latest round of an ongoing pogrom against conservative thinkers."

A pogrom, yet! Their persecution mania was already so far beyond parody that I hardly know what to call this new frontier the WashTimes has achieved -- science fiction, perhaps.

I understand Palin is going to address the nation on Martin Luther King Day. I fully expect her to sing "We Shall Overcome," and to refer to her Fox News desk as the new segregated lunch counter and to Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow as the new Bull Connor and Lester Maddox. Hell, maybe she'll complain that liberal censors prevented her from completing her tribute of Dr. King by performing in blackface.

UPDATE. Commenters are enjoying the theatrical angle suggested by the title. "We could call it Moron/Sad for short," says Susan of Texas. Michael Bérubé suggests William Kristol for the role of the Marquis de Sade and Michelle Bachmann as Charlotte Corday. But Rob W wants a rewrite: Wingnut on the Roof ("If I Were a Fox Host," "Kingmaker, Kingmaker," "Pro Life!" etc).
