Last week, at several points during the Republican convention, the crowd erupted into chants of Lock Her Up! in reference to Hillary Clinton. To say that the media found this distasteful and worthy of stern fingerwagging, would be an understatement. See The GOP’s new convention theme: ‘Lock her up!’; ‘Lock her up’ is the chant of a banana republic; and Memo to Republicans: Democracies don’t lock up political opponents. And those were just the headlines at the Washington Post.
