Moderately Amusing.

"From my own experience visiting the troops in the Middle East, I can tell you this, though: despite how the conflict has been portrayed by our glorious media, if you gave any U.S. soldier a gun with two bullets in it, and he found himself in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Osama bin Laden, there's a good chance that Nancy Pelosi would get shot twice... and Harry Reid and bin Laden would be strangled to death,"  Feherty wrote in an a D Magazine piece welcoming former President George W. Bush back to Dallas.
Heh, his comment didn't sit too well with a few reactionaries, offended as they were that such jokes about challenging the sacrosanct will of democratic process (independent of the rule of law) could be made in... public speech. (gasp) People who as David Codrea pointed out, don't understand what exactly the purpose of our military is (no, not to assassinate boobs on the hill). Read his reply here.
