Wait, what? What kind of violent rhetoric is this? The “tippy-top” absurdity from Politico aside, who will denounce this uncivil talk?
Yep, according to Politico a Dem official likened the shutdown to punching a bully in the nose:
EMAIL DU JOUR: A tippy-top Democratic official tells us the reason that President Obama and Senate Democrats WILL NOT stave off a shutdown by caving to House GOP: “Time to punch the bully in his nose.”
This Twitter user jumps on board the oh-so-civil train:
Hmm. What would she think were it aimed at President Obama?
The always awesome Amanda Carpenter, speechwriter and senior communications adviser to Sen. Cruz, cuts right to the truthful chase.
