You promised you would release him during your presidency, and, well sir, I believe your eight years is almost up, and the lame duck is about to be shot. Ha, ha, ha; I mean it, literally.
No. There was a much more specific threat in the original article. Anyway, the piece is now gone entirely. The link goes to a blank page, and the rest of the site shows no sign it ever existed.
Which is a good thing, because it was one of the most singularly horrid pieces of writing I've ever seen make it to publication, even by the low standards of college newspapers. And that's before we even get to the death threat. Well, the specific threat was something about shooting the president in the elbow (???) if he didn't pardon Leonard Peltier. And she didn't even get to that until halfway through her rant, which tells you something about her journalistic qualification. I mean, burying the lead, sheesh!
Whoever this girl is, she was never going to be a journalist or a professional writer of any sort anyway, judging from this piece. Now, the paper's editors, that's a different story. They are definitely in need of a few serious whacks with The Career-Defining Clue Bat.
Free Republic had a copy of the column in a thread, but I can't find it again.
I just looked for it; it's gone too. My guess is some idiot probably responded with a vague Clinton threat of his own somewhere in the thread; that spells instant deletion of any FR thread, since the software there can't handle deleting single posts.posted by aaron at 8:57 PM on December 5, 2000
