I think a general statement by the list moderator without mentioning Dwight, or a private message to him, would have been the best way to handle this rather than a third public rebuke. I think in normal circumstances the latter would be okay but these are not normal times. Bush has immensely divided the country by killing tens of thousands in an unprovoked attack and occupation of a country that was not an imminent threat. This is an intense emotional issue and is extremely upsetting to many. Because it is I think we need to give some slack (as Jack sometimes says) to those who may get carried away with an emotional slip now and then of their anti-republicanism. Dwight has never been a problem (that I know of) on this list and I think just some slack and time would have resolved the problem.
