      that's a bannable offense.  

      And no, this is not evidence of any LIHOP from a decade ago.  It smells funny, but we need more than that to make such an allegation.

        just aweful to even suggest that level of craven thinking in our opponents and here we have evidence that yes, they are capable of being that craven in their thinking.

          They're in place because if it's permissable to suggest the LIHOP, then discussion quickly degenerates into CT land.  Open the door a crack and the flood pours into the living room.  See the Democratic Underground for an idea of how damaging that is to a site's reputation.  Markos wouldn't be appearing on national media if he let his site be overrun by LIHOP/MIHOP nutters.  

          I agree that there is an element of the right wing in this country that is capable of such acts, and that element is very close to the levers of power.  But calling them out without evidence only makes them more powerful.
