Guess who says that Republicans should stop demonizing their opponents?

Let’s see … would this be the same woman who accused Republicans of wanting to “literally drag us back to Jim Crow days“? The same Democrat who said that a failure to agree with Democrats on spending amounted to something “almost like dictatorship“? The member of Congress who described Paul Ryan’s Medicare reform as “throw you to the wolves,” which two different media outlets exposed as completely false? The same DNC chair who produced an ad attacking Ryan’s plan by pushing an old lady out of a wheelchair and over a cliff? The woman who told the House Budget Committee that Ryan’s overall budget amounted to a “death trap for seniors” and “a tornado through nursing homes“? Is this the same party as a Congressman who accused the Tea Party of wanting to see African-Americans “hanging on a tree”?
And guess where she said this? Of course — on the same network where Martin Bashir analyzes the Tea Party by declaring its attendees as possible psychotics, Dylan Ratigan accuses Tea Party organizers of having Nazi sympathies, and Chris Matthews accuses conservative activists demanding spending cuts as fomenters of civil war.
We’ll keep that advice in mind, Debbie Downer. Maybe you should as well.
