Check out this new poll up on rabid right-wing nutjob Sean Hannity's website:

What kind of revolution appeals most to you?
-- Military Coup
-- Armed Rebellion
-- War for Secession  

Yes, you read that correctly.  The loyal followers of Sean Hannity on his website are trying to gauge which form of out-and-out treason his listeners favor most.

Think I'm being dramatic?

Here's the definition of treason:

Oran's Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as: "...[a]...citizen's actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation]." In many nations, it is also often considered treason to attempt or conspire to overthrow the government, even if no foreign country is aided or involved by such an endeavour.

Could you imagine the righteous outrage over on NRO or RedState if the website of a leading Democratic talking head like Keith Olbermann were running polls advocating the violent overthrow of the US government?

The decay of the Republican Party has been sad to watch over these last many months.  Batshit-crazy stuff like this, however, is starting to truly frighten me.

Update: Wording edited slightly to reflect that the poll on Hannity's site appears to be user-generated.

Update 2: Thanks for all the great comments.  Please rec to help get the poll noticed by the powers that be.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
