Hang Joe Lieberman in effigy???

Liberal Paul Krugman at the New York Times laments the overheated political rhetoric that "lies behind the rising tide of violence."

As the Weekly Standard points out, however, this is the same Paul Krugman who "joked" in his New York Times column, "A message to progressives: By all means, hang Senator Joe Lieberman in effigy."

This is yet another illustration of my concern over all these appeals to civility. Some on the Left are really not concerned about civility at all. They just want to intimidate and silence their political opponents. Is it overheated rhetoric to call out their hypocrisy?
