A good friend of mine is an ex-Secret Service agent. [View all]

He was part of the protection detail for "Scorecard" (AKA Dan Quayle). He's no longer with the Service, but he remains close to several men and women who are. According to my buddy, the Secret Service is in full-on, scared-shitless, sphincter-slamming alert (his words). We laugh at the freepers and others of their ilk. The Secret Service does not. I've been told that the threat level for this President is unprecedented in anyone's memory.
We all know that Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, and everyone else at FoxNoise is full of shit; but millions of Americans think that every fucking word they utter is gospel. And I won't even get into the bat-shit, spittle-flecked lunacy of the Nugents, Malkins, and Coulters.
I'm not sure where I'm going with this, except to say that the professionals who put their asses on the line have now called BULLSHIT on the media-generated false equivalency that "Yeah, but the left demonized Bush"! They take this shit seriously, and so do I.
