Those wild 'n crazy Westboro Baptists...

...just won't ever shut the hell up and go away, will they?

I mean, it's bad enough that some whackjob shoots up an Amish schoolhouse, but then you have Shirley Phelps-Roper, daughter of Fred Phelps, both examples of people with less brains than a cucumber, telling them they deserved it:

"Those Amish people, everyone is sitting around talking about those poor little girls — blah, blah, blah — they brought the wrath upon themselves," Phelps-Roper said, adding that the Amish "don't serve God, they serve themselves."

Ridiculous. And the people who cover this sort of nonsense are stuck between a rock and a hard place, really. Do you cover this stuff and, as a result, give these jerks a voice? Or do you ignore it, hoping that it will go away, but at the same time fail to expose these people for what they are?
