Using his own words against him, Verum Serum has put NY Times columnist Paul Krugman into the clown car and locked the door. Krugman attacked Sarah Palin for what he considered "menacing" symbolism on her "Take back the 20" map last week, claiming:
"All of this goes far beyond politics as usual…you’ll search in vain for anything comparably menacing, anything that even hinted at an appeal to violence, from members of Congress, let alone senior party officials….to find anything like what we’re seeing now you have to go back to the last time a Democrat was president."Well, well, well... Look what John found ...at the DNC:
And at the DCCC:
Finding the DCCC map was especially delicious, John says, because Rep. Chris Van Hollen, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) chairman, went on MSNBC's "Hardball" program to attack Gov. Palin for her map, telling host Chris Matthews:
"I really think that that is crossing a line…In this particular environment I think it’s really dangerous to try and make your point in that particular way because there are people who are taking that kind of thing seriously."Soooo... surveyor symbols -- such as those used on the Palin map -- threaten violence, but target symbols -- such as those on the Democrats' maps -- do not, because everyone knows that surveyors kill more people with their transits than all of the firearms and archers' arrows combined, right?
Democrats and their leftist media fellow travellers are such dishonorable hypocrites...
