Barkley Wants to Punch Rush Limbaugh, Karl Malone Wants to Slap Some Senators


I don’t have much to say about this, but I figure anything that falls at the intersection of pro basketball and American politics is definitely on my beat, so let’s observe that Karl Malone says “Congress and the Senators need to be slapped around” and Charles Barkely is “so close” to “just punching the hell out of” Rush Limbaugh.

For the past couple of years now I’ve been struggling, personally, to try to stop expressing my feelings about other people’s conduct in terms of fantasies of physical violence. Overall, I think it’s an unhealthy way to behave.
