NZPundit hypocrisy watch

NZPundit is disgusted at an article in the Guardian which calls for Dubya's assassination. However, as I have pointed out before, NZPundit himself has repeatedly called for the assassination of political figures he doesn't like, notably Yasser Arafat.

NZPundit should make his mind up: either political assassination is acceptable, or it isn't. But he can hardly complain about people calling for political figures to be murdered when he does exactly the same thing.

Update (26/10/04): If you followed the link above and found the Guardian's apology, ObservatioNZ has saved the original from the memory hole...
