Julian Assange: Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee Are Inciting "Murder" (VIDEO)

In an exclusive interview with Cenk Uygur, who was guest hosting 'The Dylan Ratigan Show' (weekdays 4PM ET on MSNBC), WikiLeaks president Julian Assange responded to comments made by Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee in which they called for the U.S. government to hunt him down and eliminate him for the publishing of classified information.

"Just another idiot trying to make a name for himself," was how Assange explained the comments by Palin and Huckabee.

"If we are to have a civil society, you cannot have senior people making calls on national TV to ... murder people," Assange argued. "They should be charged for incitement to commit murder."

While we certainly don't blame Assange for railing against individuals who have literally called for his execution, we're pretty sure that Huckabee and Palin -- who both already have name-first TV shows -- aren't calling for his death just to make a name for themselves.
