David Feherty Makes a Joke About a Soldier Killing Pelosi, Reid, And Bin Laden

David Feherty made what he considered a joke in a Golf Magazine. It was as follows:

""From my own experience visiting the troops in the Middle East, I can tell you this though," Feherty wrote toward the end of his column. "Despite how the conflict has been portrayed by our glorious media, if you gave any U.S. soldier a gun with two bullets in it, and he found himself in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Osama bin Laden, there's a good chance that Nancy Pelosi would get shot twice, and Harry Reid and bin Laden would be strangled to death.""

Funny, offensive, both? Is this worse then Wanda Sykes making a joke that Rush was the 20th hijacker and hoping he dies of kidney failure; a joke that Obama seemed to think was funny (Berman Post: White House Correspondents' Dinner)? Just try not to get to 'carried away' with this attempt at humor unless you are planning (or have done) the same with Wanda's 'joke'; unless you are able to draw a clear line of distinction between the two. Be sure to actually draw that line in your criticism.
