In case you missed it, The New York Times wrote an entire piece about Republicans not only pouncing on but ASSAULTING Democrats that had Republicans pouncing on the story they wrote about pouncing and assaulting.
Wow, could we say the word, ‘pounce’ any more in one sentence?
Just 2 months into the new Congress, Republicans have begun an all-out assault painting Democrats as extremists — even bigots — and trying to tar moderates with their more liberal freshman counterparts’ beliefs https://t.co/YzBdW6RB1N

From The New York Times:
Just two months into the new Congress, Republicans have begun an all-out assault painting Democrats as extremists — even bigots — and trying to tar moderates with their more liberal freshman counterparts’ beliefs. Their talking points appear to be resonating with some voters the Democrats will need next year if they are to keep their majority — and the voters determined to flip the districts back.
‘Tar moderates’. Alrighty.
“It’s a challenge, but it’s what I signed up for,” Ms. Spanberger said in an interview after the town hall. She made a point of thanking her more critical questioners, including Dale Swanson, a founder of the local conservative women’s coalition, for their presence and their questions.
Those poor Democrats, getting called out for pushing legislation that would allow a baby who has just been born to be aborted and protecting a bunch of other Democrats for wearing blackface and being accused of sexual assault. Oh, and we especially feel sorry for them getting painted with the crazy brush about the Green New Deal.
Shame on Republicans! A pox on their house!
Conservatives pounce. https://t.co/Ncn0ceNScp

Republicans have not yet begun to pounce!
You know what would help?
If Dems didn't espouse extreme positions on stuff like "day of delivery abortions" or "let's get rid of airplanes and cars" or "we're going to ban guns and hamburgers."

I heard they even smirked occasionally. It’s a travesty.

They’re doing a fine job of “painting” themselves as that without any republican help.
But, ya know, something something “POUNCE.”

We’re assaulting now, thank you very much.
Your journo game is weak.

WE MUST POUNCE!
Haven’t the democrats done that to themselves?

Ding ding ding.
1. You do this to Republicans every day.
2. There are no moderate Democrats. The extremists took the party over in 2008. You supported and advocated for this.

I don't seem to remember you bemoaning the times when Democrats painted Republicans as extremists (for believing things Democrats believed up until yesterday, more or less). Then again, I don't read your rag so I could have missed it.

Well DUH, because they believe Republicans are extremists.
