Poisoning Justice Stevens

Because everyone is obsessed with Ann Coulter and everything she says must be monitored:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Conservative commentator Ann Coulter, speaking at a traditionally black college, joked that Justice John Paul Stevens should be poisoned.

Coulter had told the Philander Smith College audience Thursday that more conservative justices were needed on the Supreme Court to change the current law on abortion. Stevens is one of the court's most liberal members.

"We need somebody to put rat poisoning in Justice Stevens' creme brulee," Coulter said. "That's just a joke, for you in the media."
Apparently it's newsworthy as well. Even though most people have no idea who John Paul Stevens is, a harmless joke about the most senior justice behind Chief Justice John Roberts will prompt some idiots to demand a trial and hanging.
