In addition to her loopy policy prescriptions, Allwine is a prolific letter writer and commenter to the Baltimore Sun. See for instance, her response to my Sun oped about conservative talk radio. She claims to reveal the darkness of the conservative heart, and its evil campaign against her all good things progressivism. To Allwine nearly all conservative talk radio is, “designed to make you hate people who are different from you.”
Take a moment to let her inanity hang there for a moment before reading on.
However, her December 16, 2008 letter takes the cake.
Thank you, Muntadar al-Zeidi, for doing what so many of us have dreamed of doing over these last eight years but have never had the chance to do. President Bush deserves neither respect nor gratitude for his destruction of an entire country and its culture.Mr. Bush refuses to acknowledge his responsibility for the thousands of Iraqi civilian deaths and millions of refugees his invasion of Iraq has caused, and he will most likely never be held accountable for his crimes against humanity, Iraq and his own country. I only wish the shoes had hit him.

What was that about hating people different from you...
I’m not a proponent of the infinite monkey theorem, but it wouldn’t take a million monkeys banging away at typewriters more than an hour to produce an Allwine letter to the Sun.
