The NY Times is reporting on an email exchange between Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin. According to the Times (

“Sarah, as you know, peace is always the answer,” said Mr. Beck, reading from an e-mail he sent her. “I know you are feeling the same heat, if not much more on this. I want you to know you have my support. But please look into protection for your family. An attempt on you could bring the republic down.”

I had no idea. Through the actual assassination of four presidents, and at least 20 serious assassination attempts of presidents, not to mention all manner of wars, depressions, scandals, terrorist attacks, and the rise and fall of disco, we have persevered. Who knew our republic would be so vulnerable to an attempt on the life of one ex-governor.

You can’t make this stuff up.
