The Washington Post reports on remarks from outgoing DCCC chair Steve Israel:

On Monday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi named New Mexico Rep. Ben Luján to take over the committee after Israel declined staying on for a third term. The outgoing chair is proudly standing behind his tenure: “On the whole, I think that when bombs were bursting in air, and we were in the trenches, we fundamentally made the right decisions, as tough as they were.”

Trying to sugarcoat your ignominious failure is one thing but that martial language should come with a trigger warning, Steve. Violent rhetoric!

The voices tell him not to.

Heh.
