Clearly, the latest Frank Rich columns in The New York Times have hit a raw nerve of the collective conservative blogosphere. On the website Free Republic alone, comments in reaction to Rich's first column, "Someone Tell The President The War Is Over," include these telling (rich?) examples (minor typos, etc., preserved) --
"Sheehan is a vile little woman who dishonors her son who was a hero. Rich is just a vile little man."
"All I can say is that Rich's T-cells must be dying in an accelerated fashion. Yes, that innuendo means exactly what you think it means."
"This is the face of progressive democrats...A socialist/marxist Frank Rich. What he doesn' wanna believe is he is kindlin for hell,nothing more."
"I never bother to read any of the psychotic syphilitic ravings of Frank Rich. His ignorance is exceeded only by his idiocy and depravity.... and they always have to publish his repulsive sneering face alongside his columns, so I quickly just 'move on'......"
"There is no difference in the enemy we face in the Mideast and the liberal enemy we face at home."
