None dare call it treason

Six or seven years ago, a commentator merely suggesting that the sun did not, in fact, shine out of George W. Bush's ass was usually good for a solid week of panel discussions on CNN and FOX about "Does the media have a responsibility to support the president in time of war?" and "Why do liberals hate America?" and "Is it treasonous to oppose the invasion of Iraq or does it just make baby Jesus cry?"

Fast forward to today and an open call for a military coup doesn't even merit a mention in the press.
America, you've come a long way baby!
Update Oct 1: NewsMax, which is sponsored in part by the Republican National Committee, has pulled the offending column in the face of blogospheric outrage that has started to seep toward the MSM. But Media Matters kept a copy on file for future reference.

The Dixie Chicks must be spoiling to punch someone. Perhaps they should be interviewed by someone with a clue.

Stop laughing, there must be one. Surely Rachel Maddow has a crush on one of them.

Speaking of the Dixie Chicks,
surely you've seen this?
