Baleful quote of the day

"Of course, we need to execute a few of these people ... A few of these prominent liberals who are trying to demoralise the country ... Just take a couple of these anti-war people off to the gas chamber for treason to show, if you try to bring down America at a time of war, that's what you'll get. Then things'll change." - 35 year old female guest on a National Review cruise

Via Glenn Greenwald.

I might be wrong, but I think I've seen that quote or something very like it attributed to Ann Coulter.

She's made various similar comments, and its not a surprise that someone willing to pay thousands of dollars to go on a NR review might have assimilated such views.

The most obvious that comes to mind was Coulter saying John Lindh should be executed so that liberals know that they can be killed, too.
