“Democrats should be very nervous,” said Bill Burton, a former White House spokesman and senior strategist at Priorities USA, which is raising millions of dollars for the 2012 election. “They need to put on their war paint and get ready for what is going to be a very difficult battle.”
Vicious ethnic stereotyping AND violent rhetoric! I‘m surprised that Bill didn’t go on to light a cigar and threaten to scalp Republicans in our sleep.
PS: Bill Burton willingly participated in a contemptible defense of a scurrilous attack of a POW and true torture victim, just to make sure that his candidate (Barack Obama) won a Presidential election. No forgiveness without repentance; and if Bill Burton doesn’t like having to follow the rules of his own faction’s speech code, Bill Burton’s welcome to challenge it in public. Which he won’t dare do, of course; not enough moral fiber in his diet.
There’s just something entertaining about watching an Ivy League intellectual like Elizabeth Warren try to act all tough and stuff:
The Harvard Law School professor and consumer protection adviser to President Obama told The Huffington Post in March 2010 that if a full consumer protection agency wasn’t possible, her second choice would be “no agency at all and plenty of blood and teeth left on the floor.”
Particularly since Warren’s nomination to head the new (and likely, useless) Consumer Financial Protection Bureau ended up resembling the political equivalent of a subcompact car hitting a brick wall at 90 miles an hour. I’d think about being sympathetic, except that the woman is gearing up to martyr herself again on behalf of a Democratic establishment that could care less about her; this time, Warren’s apparently going to volunteer to for the sacrificial victim role in Scott Brown’s re-election campaign. I learned a long time ago that some people simply like to be degraded like this; it’s not my cup of tea, but if that’s what it takes for Warren, well…
PS: I note for the record, of course, that if a Republican talked like this we’d never, ever hear the end of it.
You know, I still haven’t figured out why it’s only OK for Democratic politicians to use violence-themed metaphors whenever they feel like it. Actually, that’s a lie: I know quite well. It’s because they never get punished for it.
Ach, well, it also makes them stupid as well as vile, bless their hearts.
