That ended today when DNC leader Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, aka "Thunderlips," did what I feared might happen...used the tragedy again to slander the Tea Party movement (Michelle Malkin).
“We need to make sure that we tone things down, particularly in light of the Tucson tragedy from a year ago, where my very good friend, Gabby Giffords — who is doing really well, by the way, — [was shot],” Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chair said during a “Politics and Eggs” forum this morning. “The discourse in America, the discourse in Congress in particular . . . has really changed, I’ll tell you. I hesitate to place blame, but I have noticed it take a very precipitous turn towards edginess and lack of civility with the growth of the Tea Party movement.”
Interestingly, it was a year ago tomorrow that Richard Milhous Obama lectured the nation about talking to each other "in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds," as well as "living up to our childrens' expectations."
So just who has been engaging in or excusing uncivil rhetoric over the last year, Debbie? It isn't the Tea Party. The following video compilation was created just for your benefit.
Have you no shame, you hypocrite?
