The guy was overwhelmed by Palin derangement syndrome. It’s happened quite a few times now in recent years, and so it would seem a fairly unremarkable incident among its type.
Bashir reached new heights though. Note, the intent of his narrative was two fold: 1) to play something of a Godwin rule card, so that Palin could be called dumb for using the word ‘slavery’ injudiciously, and 2) publicly orate the imagery of someone crapping in Palin’s mouth.
Number two … ahem … was of course the primary motivation. That’s what Bashir wanted most, for whatever reason.
Writing this out to set up the various contexts probably takes a couple hours. If you are in Bashir’s position and better judgment doesn’t call to you during that time…. I dunno.
I do know these people keep telling us that right is more uncivil than the left. My arse.
