Suffering from irony deficiency

Oliver Willis managed to find a comment over at Free Republic that has him all in a dither. Apparently a commenter (not even a poster, but a commenter) called for shooting Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald.

Setting aside the possibility that the commenter might have been a Moby, let’s see just where Ollie picked up on this outrage:

Democratic Underground.

Well, I guess if ANYONE would be experts at deranged threats, screaming insanity, paranoia, and sheer, gibbering lunacy, it’d be DU.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go shopping. My irony gauge just exploded, and I need a new one.
