CBS Golf Analyst David Feherty On U.S. Soldiers' Death Wish For Pelosi And Reid

David Feherty, golf analyst for CBS Sports and former professional golfer, wrote an article in which he suggested that American soldiers have the desire to murder Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid:

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.

These comments are not only threatening to national leaders, and therefore treasonous, but they're also insulting to soldiers whose mission is to defend the country, not shoot elected officials. Further, to put Pelosi and Reid on the same level as mass murderer bin Laden shows a serious lack of perspective, to put it mildly. I have no recollection of liberal commentators speaking about the assassination of Republican leaders during the Bush era. Feherty is living up to the title of his book "An Idiot For All Seasons." CBS should suspend or fire him immediately.
