ADL report on "toxic atmosphere of rage" ignites...well, rage

Predictably, the right has gone ballistic over last week's ADL report describing a  “toxic atmosphere of rage in America” and  tying that to the “birther” and “tea party” movements, this summer's health  reform town meeting disruptions and some conservative talk show hosts.
