" c..., here's a stunt. Kick him 'til he's dead." Where were our delicate flowers of civility then?

It's a lyric taken from the Rock Against Howard CD.

Tracks included John Howard is a Filthy Slut and Gun Him Down.

Interesting in the context of the current bout of insincere and fake leftoid hand-wringing about those nasty conservative race-baiters making horrible comparisons between Ms Gillard and Mr Ghaddafi, or saying hurtful things about the member for New England.

Labor's then national president, Dr Carmen Lawrence, was so shocked and disturbed at the violent and extreme content that she sent a note congratulating the man behind the CD, Lindsay McDougall of the band Frenzal Rhomb, as did Bob Brown.

Or, for the theatrically inclined, when the Melbourne Theatre Company put on a play by Hannie Rayson that portrayed then Treasurer Peter Costello as a liar and adulterer with a dead drug addict for a son - and showed him letting boat people drown and stabbing a refugee.

But as Mr Bolt observes, it's only rude when a Liberal does it.
