And that's...the REST of the genocide!

Well, for years we've been waiting for Paul Harvey to lose his mind, and he finally has; on his radio broadcast yesterday, the octogenarian commentator urged the US government to simply drop a hail of nuclear bombs on the entire Middle East, ending the so-called "war on terrorism" once and for all. And the saddest part is that I'm not making this up; check out this entry by Chicago Tribune columnist Eric Zorn to read the actual transcript, which unbelievably is even more offensive than the summary I just gave. (For example, he actually defends the Pilgrims giving blankets to Native Americans that were tainted with smallpox, arguing that biological warfare is a perfectly acceptable solution in life when you want something that someone else has. Seriously, man, you simply have to read this transcript to believe it.)
