The Ayatollah Khomeini, Osama Bin Laden, and Tony Hendra

Writer Tony Hendra joins the likes of fanatical haters like Khomeini and Bin Laden with a "prayer" at Huffington Post:
I give thanks O Lord for Dick Cheney's Heart, that brave organ which has done its darn-tootin' best on four separate occasions to do what we can only dream about.

O Lord, give Dick Cheney's Heart, Our Sacred Secret Weapon, the strength to try one more time! For greater love hath no heart than that it lay down its life to rid the planet of its Number One Human Tumor.
There are many legitimate reasons for disagreeing with Cheney and for expressing disapproval of his politics. But wishing for his death is sick, sick, sick, sick.

For another perspective, see Helen Smith's post here. I don't agree with Smith that Hendra's words are worse than those contained in Michael Richards' recent rampage. But I do think that they're every bit as despicable!
