On Friday, the folks at People for the American Way's Right Wing Watch happened on an ugly and deranged rant from one of the rising stars on the wingnut talk circuit, Pete Santilli.  I mentioned this on Friday, but I'm reposting for the benefit of those who only have Internet at work.

To put it mildly, Santilli is a piece of work.  He's a full-on conspiracy theorist--he's not only a 9-11 truther, but thinks Sandy Hook was predicted by a map in The Dark Knight Rises and that the raid on bin Laden's compound never really happened.  Media Matters has more on him here.

But last week, Santilli went several miles off the deep end.  He made an extremely graphic death threat against Hillary Clinton.  He said that he wanted to personally shoot her in the vagina for her supposed role in faking the raid on bin Laden's compound.  Listen here (sorry, it won't embed).

The whole show is on YouTube--the Hillary rant starts at the 1 hour 59 minute mark.  Pile up the dislikes--and report it as well.  Call the Secret Service on this too--apparently Santilli forgot that as a former First Lady, the Secret Service still protects her (per a law enacted earlier this year that restored lifetime protection for former presidential spouses as long as they're still married).  This kind of rhetoric simply cannot be allowed to stand.

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.
