Does anyone have the actual wording of the death threats?
Were they worse than when Bill Maher said that Soetoro should put the head of a decapitated intern into the bed of a "too progressive" democratic congressman?
MADDOW: Maybe people will be mobilized by the extremism of the people who are calling Obama Hitler and calling him a Nazi and bringing their AR-15s to the town halls. Maybe the Obama-ites who came out in such numbers in the election will be turned out specifically because they‘re so horrified by the atmosphere that‘s happening whenever Obama does one of these town hall meetings and people show up with guns.
MAHER: Well, you think it would have happened by now, because this has been going on for weeks and weeks at this point - the guns in the town hall meetings. You know, I think people figure it‘s just a tiny fringe and it‘s inflated by the media. And that‘s not entirely untrue. There are people out there who are scary and nutty. I don‘t know how much a part of the larger population they represent - certainly, a good chunk of it. But, you know, again, it‘s not the Republicans - I mean, of course, it is the Republicans who are holding this up. But that‘s the given. You know, the real death panel is that Senate Finance Committee. It‘s these Democratic senators, the Kent Conrads and the Max Baucuses from these tiny little states that represent one or two percent of the population. That‘s holding up the works. You know, I guess the days of arm-twisting are over within your own party. I don‘t know, maybe I‘m just remembering finally my image of Lyndon Johnson and people like that doing that. You know, you wake up and there‘s an intern‘s head in your bed or something.
I don‘t know. They used to be able to corral the members of their own party to get behind the business of that party. I don‘t think that‘s something that‘s gone away. I mean Bush did it only a few years ago when he was president. He seemed to get his puppies in a line. Why can‘t Obama do that?
Bill Maher is the Grover Norquist of the Fake Left (Grover is for the flat tax and other insane bankster deceptions). Notice how all these fake left/right attack dogs promote slavery/depopulation of 50% of the American people? Same bullshit, different assholes..."[Democrats] will only become acceptable once they are comfortable in their minority status. Any farmer will tell you that certain animals run around and are unpleasant, but when they've been fixed, then they are happy and sedate."
-Grover Norquist, as quoted by Paul Krugman, NY Times, November 10, 2006
]"Our goal is to inflict pain. It is not good enough to win; it has to be a painful and devastating defeat. We're sending a message here. It is like when the king would take his opponent's head and spike it on a pole for everyone to see."
-Grover Norquist from the National Review, quoted in The Republican Noise Machine by David Brock, Crown Publishers 2004, pg. 50 "Bipartisanship is another name for date rape."

Was it worse than Ed Shultz:
Unwatchable MSNBC host Ed Schultz apparently wasn't so happy about being omitted from the network's recent election night promos. Two weeks ago, Page Six reports, he went nuts in MSNBC's New York offices, screaming obscenities at everyone. Schultz, host of 6 p.m.'s The Ed Show, apparently cried in his bosses' offices afterwards, after yelling what was probably "f**kers!" at everyone in the office:MSNBC talk show screamer Ed Schultz had a meltdown in the network's 30 Rock newsroom, shouting at staff, "I'm going to torch this [bleep]ing place." The hot-tempered anchor of "The Ed Show" lost it during a phone call in the packed studio and slammed down the phone before exploding. As astonished MSNBC staff members fell silent, Schultz glared around the room and yelled, "[Bleep]ers!" A witness told us, "Ed was furious the network was running election-night promos and he wasn't in them. He'd been arguing on the phone with marketing, then he slammed down the phone and exploded...."
This incident allegedly took place on August 12. Interestingly, Inside Cable News notes that the next morning, Joe Scarborough appeared to be making fun of Ed's rampage on Morning Joe. It didn't make much sense at the time, but now we know that was leaving a trail of clues! Cable news is insane.
Was it worse than Michael Reagan:

Neocon Talkshow Host Michael Reagan Wants to Kill Mark Dice
June 13, 2008
San Diego, CA) Radio talk show host Michael Reagan is calling for the murder of political activist, Mark Dice, after hearing that Dice is mailing letters and DVDs to troops in Iraq. Reagan wants to pay for the bullets.

Transcript of Reagan’s statements:
“Excuse me folks, I’m going to say this. We ought to find the people who are doing this, take them out and shoot them. Really. You take them out, they are traitors to this country, and shoot them. You have a problem with that? Deal with it. You shoot them. You call them traitors, that’s what they are, and you shoot them dead. I’ll pay for the bullets.”
Reagan adds, “How about you take Mark Dice out and put him in the middle of a firing range. Tie him to a post, don’t blindfold him, let it rip and have some fun with Mark Dice.”
Dice is demanding that Reagan be fired immediately. “Calling for the murder of someone because you disagree with their political stance is absolutely unacceptable, un American, and possibly illegal,” says Dice.
Dice has filed a report with the FBI and is considering legal action against Reagan.
Dice’s organization, The Resistance, has launched a campaign to send documentary films and declassified documents to U.S. troops who are stationed in Iraq to inform them that the 9/11 attacks were aided by elements within the U.S. government.
