“She looks like a tough old girl, here” Donna Dewitt, the union official, says while adjusting the pinata for a perfect smash.

“Well, whack her harder!” says an unnamed voice. “Wait until her face comes around, whap her!

How about if we pasted Donna Dewitt's face onto a B-27 silhouette, would that be OK? After all, I'm sure she's a "tough old girl" too.

That's because the call for civility is intended only for conservatives. That makes perfect sense in their warped little liberal minds.

Agreed; that's why it's considered OK to display a Sarah Palin hanging effigy but an unflattering (even if unaltered) picture of Barack Obama is considered "hateful".
