It’s a slippery slope from dissent to treason, and it’s one that right-wing pundits started sliding down as soon as Obama was elected.

First, there was Rush Limabugh’s "I hope Obama fails" comment back in January. Then came Glenn Beck’s "Obama hates white people" rant from July. This Wednesday, Limbaugh might have crossed the line from commentary to incendiary exhortation with this quip on his radio show:

Many have said that this remark is much more than a joke. It’s calling for a military coup, and it’s sedition. Perhaps it’s time for the FBI to step in and flex its muscle, if for no other purpose than to keep these guys honest. Do we want to wait until something horrible is done by one of their followers before we take action?

What’s on your mind?
