And we're praying that Sasha and Malia don't use the Internet

by Jeremy Hooper

No, there's no reason to be concerned with extremism in this country:

Facebook Group 'Praying' For President Obama's Death Passes 1 Million Members [Huff Po]

Unreal. Yes, I wanted Bush's agenda to lose support. Yes, I wanted many of his policies to fail. Yes, I opposed a number of his appointments and nominees. Yes, I spoke out against that administration and what I feel it did to this country, and I will probably do so for the rest of my life. But I can honestly say that I never wanted Dubya to even get so much as a bad migraine, much less an early grave. And here we have over a million people people who are literally praying -- PRAYING! AS IN TO GOD! -- that our president will this year meet the same fates as Patrick Swazye, Farrah Fawcett, and Michael Jackson?

Not gonna lie: I sometimes wonder if this experiment known as a United States of America can even be saved.

**Just one of the "charming" comments one can find at the group:

*Oh, and yes, I'm well aware that most Facebook groups tend to have a number of non-supporters who "like" or "fan" a page in order to leave comments. Many of us have done that with anti-equality groups. But this one really doesn't seem to be that way. Now that it's gotten attention there are more progressives pushing back than there were before. But the vast majority of comments are still sincere.
