I’m very busy this week but I had to share this from Andrew Malcolm…
Outrage flooding in now even from overseas over former Vice President Dick Cheney likening some opponents of President Bush’s policies and administration to “terrorists.”
Terrorists? Really? With the 10th anniversary of real terrorism coming next month. Pathetic, even for Repugnicans.
It’s the kind of over-the-top rhetorical retribution that only inflames political passions and hard feelings at a highly partisan time in the nation’s capitol. You have to expect it from the veteran Washington insider and no-holds-barred Republican enforcer who once worked for an oil industry company. …
Oh, wait. What? Oh, that’s right. It was Vice President Joe Biden who said that. And it happened during a caucus of his party’s angry Democratic House members, not Republicans.
Well, nevermind then.
Never mind indeed. All part of the lefts New Tone TM, or as Ed Morrisey reminds us, the New Civility.
