Will Duck Fire Cho?
In the 10.10 entry of her weblog [scroll down], commedian (and I'm using the term loosely) Margaret Cho told the world she wants the Pope dead. In her 10.09 entry, she calls Ann Coulter Cunta Kinte. This seething hate-monger is actually on a stand-up tour that includes a few universities. If Cho were a conservative defaming the Dali Lama and and calling Sen. Hillary Clinton a Socialist, baby-killing slut student groups would be protesting outside the auditorium. While the blogosphere goes off on some poorly-worded thoughts by Gregg Easterbrook (that gets him fired from ESPN) all you hear about Cho is the white noise of web servers humming. No sound comes from Meryl Yourish when Cho writes that Christopher Columbus "killed f**king everybody to prove that the world was round, not actually flat" [10.13]. She even has the audacity to model herself after that Communist thug Che Guevara.
Based on her hateful statements will the Howard Dean campaign let her post on their weblog again? If so, that means they're implicitly endorsing a hate-monger.
