Bad will hunting

Once again, the blog world has ensconced itself in a mostly barren waste of time, with righties trying to manufactuure outrage over the New York Times printing a story in the travel section about the Eastern Shore homes of Cheney and Rumsfeld, information which is widely known, especially in the state of Maryland, and has been publicised any number of times over the last few months. Indeed, during the Katrina debacle, Cheney was in St. Michaels looking to buy his new property, which was noted almost everywhere. The energies that have gone into this idiocy are staggering. But I couldn't ignore it anymore once word came out that the nutjobbers had advanced to the point of advocating the stalking of children.

Righties, led by a loathesome Michelle Malkin and a deeply disturbed David Horowitz, deemed that the Times' story contained useful information that terrorists could exploit, as though they're tuned to the travel sections of newspapers looking for the latest intel leaks. Perhaps this suggests that Sec Def Rumsfeld is not sufficiently prudent during this war on terror. He did, after all, approve the story and the photograph righties have blown a worn-out gasket over. But to the fragalistic right, the Times wants Rumsfeld dead, basically printing a hit notice.

But they didn't stop at just being outraged by the further exposure of already widely public information. Some have sculpted a plot to expose NY Times reporters and editors to the dangers of the world. And the plot is a show stopper, importuning blog activists to "hunt them down."
So, in the school of what's good for the goose is good for the gander, we are providing this link so YOU may help the blogosphere in locating the homes (perhaps with photos?) of the editors and reporters of the New York Times.

Let's start with the following New York Times reporters and editors: Arthur "Pinch" Sulzberger Jr. , Bill Keller, Eric Lichtblau, and James Risen. Do you have an idea where they live?

Go hunt them down and do America a favor. Get their photo, street address, where their kids go to school, anything you can dig up, and send it to the link above. This is your chance to be famous - grab for the golden ring.
But the anger is all on the left; a body of unhinged loons, as Malkin has proclaimed.

What is amazing to me is all the energy that goes into this nonsense, both on the left and the right. The left, of course, is pointing out the insanity of these ignorant trolls, pointing out the facts of the story, that this information is very public. The right? I'm not sure what creates such a level of embittered hostility, although it might have something to do with the fact that the Bush regime is suffering mightily. Iraq is clearly lost, Iran is playing us, the Supreme Court just smacked Bush and I must conclude that these ardent Bush supporters are simply crazed with bile by the obviously failed experiment in "conservative" government.
