Alternate headline: You know you're winning the battle when the liberal-Left responds with violence and misogyny but we're being redundant.
The liberal-left is hitting back against conservatives in the only way they know how.
First up, here's an AFL-CIO honcho taking it to a South Carolina governor, Nikki Haley, pinata. Click here for Youtube video as embed was disabled.
That probably was not that egregious but ask yourself something: do those look and sound like the kind of folks your Mom and Pop would be pleased to see you hanging out with?
Next up, Hustler (yes, it's still around) published a photoshopped image of conservative pundit/talker S.E. Cupp performing oral sex. If you must, a blurred image can be found here.
A couple of things raced through our mind when we found out about this: the real outrage here would be if Hustler didn't pull a sophmoric toilet-stall stunt like this. And, who really thinks the 82 zit-riddled 16 yr. olds that don't have internet and which comprise Hustler's target demographic out there would know who S.E. Cupp is?
And yes, Twitter has been blowing up at #istandwithsecupp.
Our favorite contribution thus far: S.E. Cupp: still faster than LarryFlynt.

And finally, conservative blogger/writer Robert Stacy McCain (The Other McCain blog) and his family have taken flight from their home in Maryland to an undisclosed location due to credible threats on him by convicted terrorist and lefty sweetheart, Brett Kimberlin.
Law enforcement officials have been made aware that convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin appears to be engaged in an attempt to intimidate me into being silent about his sordid criminal history.
Appropriate precautions have been taken to ensure the safety of my family and others who might be endangered if Kimberlin resorts to violence to accomplish his malicious purposes. At the urging of concerned friends, we have vacated our former residence and I am now blogging from a secret location which Kimberlin will be unable to discover or reach. Nevertheless, we sincerely ask for intercessory prayer, that God will send angels to guard us in this grave crisis.
In fact, this crisis is an answer to prayer: My wife and I had been contemplating whether to leave Maryland, and had asked that God would give us a sign. Guess we got what we prayed for — unexpectedly!
Nevertheless, my sudden relocation — The Mother of All Road Trips, as it were — will involve large expenses. We will have to rent a new house, pay people to pack up the belongings at our former residence, and move everything to the new location.
Remember that this is still a Shameless Capitalist Blog, and keep in mind The Five Most Important Words in the English Language . . .
HIT THE FREAKING TIP JAR!
We could never figure out just what is the fascination with violent criminals and terrorists and the liberal-Left of this country. Blowing up stuff and trying to blou up people is not romantic. It's stupid. And your a damn fool if you think otherwise.
With the election season heating up, we suppose we should brace ourselves for more of the same.
