Memo to the Boiler Room crew – do some dumpster diving and come up with examples (attach as an update to this thread) about what the Corpulent, pony tailed blogger used to say about Baghdad Jim McDermott (circa 2002 -03). James McDermott is a mentally deranged scum bucket congressman from Washington State who went to Baghdad to give aid and comfort to Saddam Hussein before the Second Gulf War, and if this Charles Turner Habermann guy threatened him so what? Let the authorities deal with him, he is not our problem any more then the Left felt that threatening Bush and Cheney was their problem. Fat Boy has no problems with threats against Malkin, Palin, Bachmann, et al.

Another Right Wing Lunatic Arrested for Threatening a Congressman
Wingnuts • Thu Jan 13, 2011 at 10:23 am PST • Views: 7,101
A 32-year old Palm Springs resident named Charles Turner Habermann has been arrested and charged with threatening Seattle Congressman Jim McDermott.
I wonder how the wingnuts will try to explain this one away.
The threats preceded by several weeks the deadly Arizona shooting that saw six killed and U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords severely wounded.
Habermann also disparaged Democrats for their views on tax cuts and unemployment insurance, according to the statement. Habermann is alleged to have threatened to kill McDermott in an effort to interfere with his vote on the tax cut proposal in December 2010. …
In one, the caller was heard calling McDermott “a piece of human filth,” “a communist,” and a “piece of (expletive) garbage.”
“Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, or George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, if any of them had ever met uh, uh Jim McDermott, they would all blow his brains out,” Habermann said in the first rambling message, according to charging documents. “They’d shoot him, in the head. They’d kill him, because he’s a piece of, of, of disgusting garbage. …
“Any you let that (expletive) scum bag know, that if he ever (expletive) with my money, ever the (expletive) again, I’ll (expletive) kill him, okay,” Habermann continued, according to charges. “I’ll round them up, I’ll kill them, I’ll kill his friends, I’ll kill his family, I will kill everybody he (expletive) knows.”
This isn’t the first time Habermann has been in trouble for threatening politicians, either.
Federal prosecutors contend Habermann was investigated in March after making similar threats against a member of the California State Assembly.
In that instance, Habermann was escorted from the assembly member’s office.
“During the meeting Habermann began ranting about the current federal health care bill and how Habermann was ‘very well off’ and did not want to support immigrants and Latinos,” Giboney told the court. “Habermann was described as agitated, paranoid, uneasy and couldn’t keep still.”
Sure, all that sounds like it came straight out of a Tea Party demonstration. But hey — maybe he once read “The Communist Manifesto?”
UPDATE I – My, my,my look what I found! Was Charles Johnson inciting violence against a United States congressman?
McDermott: Pond Scum
Speaking of Democrats who are unpatriotic, here’s the poster boy for this foul crowd; Congressman Jim McDermott, who went to Iraq before the war and criticized our president in the stronghold of our enemies: Wash. Congressman Questions Saddam Timing.
WASHINGTON – The Washington congressman who criticized President Bush while visiting Baghdad last year has questioned the timing of the capture of deposed Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., told a Seattle radio station Monday the U.S. military could have found Saddam “a long time ago if they wanted.” Asked if he thought the weekend capture was timed to help Bush, McDermott chuckled and said: “Yeah. Oh, yeah.”
The Democratic congressman went on to say, “There’s too much by happenstance for it to be just a coincidental thing.”
When interviewer Dave Ross asked again if he meant to imply the Bush administration timed the capture for political reasons, McDermott said: “I don’t know that it was definitely planned on this weekend, but I know they’ve been in contact with people all along who knew basically where he was. It was just a matter of time till they’d find him.
“It’s funny,” McDermott added, “when they’re having all this trouble, suddenly they have to roll out something
UPDATE II – Chuckles calls him a moonbat – now that is hate speech and note the Islamophobia.
CAIR’s Public Official of the Year: McDermott
In Washington State, the Islamist front group CAIR held a banquet to give an award to Representative (Moonbat-Seattle) Jim McDermott, and to announce that the King County Democratic Party has made an anti-Israel statement part of their platform: More than 300 Muslims gather for Seattle banquet.
One overt political note was sounded as U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Seattle, was introduced and given CAIR’s public-official-of-the-year award for his support of the Muslim community.
Before giving McDermott his plaque, Samia El-Moslimany, CAIR vice chair, announced “tremendous news.”
She told the crowd that the King County Democratic Party, meeting earlier in the day elsewhere within the Convention Center, had voted into its platform a commitment to “withhold U.S. tax dollars from Israel while it is in violation of international law.”
“This is a memorable day,” said El-Moslimany.
The anti-Israel statement was one of 235 amendments to the party’s platform, according to Greg Rodriguez, King County party chairman. Reached at home last night, Rodriguez could not recall the exact wording, but said, “I would imagine that probably did get in.”
Following El-Moslimany to the podium, McDermott said that passage of the platform commitment should encourage all American Muslims to get involved in the political process.
Update (ChenZhen): Grabbed a screencap of the former, so I might as well post it in here:
While we reserve the right to revisit the subject of updings and downdings later, we’re going to conclude our Hall of Fame series with what the The Boiler Room has identified as the #1 updinged comment in all of LGF history.
I’m not going to put the disclaimer up this time, because I don’t think that it will matter. Laptops are going to short out regardless. ‘Cause this legend of lizardom doubled CJ’s all-time high of 69:

Our old friend LudwigVanQuixote has return. After much pressure from this blog, Chuck has decided to let him come back. I would like to thank all here who made his return possible. Our pressure and our support of Ludwig’s cause made the difference.He owes us and knows that we defended him, while many of his so-called friends stayed silent as Iceweasel imposed her will. We stood by you Ludwig and never forget that.
Ludwig wastes no time in getting deep and even claims he is in touch with Rabbis to help get Jews to fight Global Warming. I wonder if he patched things up with the Yeshiva students?
Glad to have you back Ludwig! Please don’t hold back and speak your minds. We are your real friends here and not the fakes at LGF!
“I’m not suggesting a conspiracy… And yet, in a very real way this isn’t a coincidence at all.” –Charles Johnson 12 January 2011.
Yep. Chuck actually said that in reference to an edited Wikipedia entry on the definition of the term “Blood Libel.” He posted that with the not-so-subtle insinuation that Sarah Palin Operatives modified the definition a day before she uttered the words in defense of media attacks attempting to link her and the Republican Party to the actions of deranged assassin Jared Loughner.
Now let’s look at something else that is definitely not a coincidence:
