CRYSTAL BALL: Andrew Sullivan will soon link to this post by John Derbyshire, continuing the chroncles of Derb's ventures outside the bounds of polite discourse. In this edition, Derb fantasizes about killing anti-war protestors (which is extreme, but perhaps forgiveable as a joke) by approvingly citing a joke by a "friend of Ulster Unionist sympathies" about killing Irish Catholics (which is a little creepy).

I have some confidence in this prediction, as I emailed Andrew the link as a nominee for the Derbyshire Award, AndrewSullivan.com's eponymous prize for rightwing extremism, and I just got a thank you back.

UPDATE: I told you so (ninth item).
