So most folks are now familiar with conservative activist Edwin Vieira's call for Stalin-like tactics against federal judges. UNC Law Professor Eric Muller responded by calling for a federal investigation, on the grounds that it is at least a potential threat against the judiciary (which is a crime). Vieira then posted a comment on Eric's site saying that wasn't what he meant at all, and it was "character assassination" to suggest otherwise. And Muller obliging takes the bait to smack Vieira down again.
This is the voice of the modern Republicans. Their lust for power knows no bounds.
