The New Civility Crumbles into the Same Ol’, Same Ol’ in 3…2…1…

You knew it wouldn’t last.

Steve Cohen (D-TN) starts it off with a bang, comparing the GOP and Tea Party to Nazis. Niiiiice. He’s not sorry, either.

…the last time he stooped this low he tossed in a little joke about McCain looking like a Vietcong POW again when he stood next to Palin. That’s the mentality you’re dealing with here — exhibit 8,579 in what a sleazy fraud the left’s ostentatious handwringing over “civility” is.

Is there a corollary of Godwin’s Law that relates to the US Congress?

Regardless of the business-as-usual demagoguery, the House repealed the atrocious Obamacare 245-189, with three Democrats joining the GOP in the vote. The three Democrats were Reps. Dan Boren (OK), Mike McIntyre (NC) and Mike Ross (AR). They also opposed the law last year.

Now the bill moves to the Senate, that model body of decorum. Some Senate leaders have vowed to stall the bill. President Obama promises to veto any repeal of his pride and joy that reaches his desk.

Desperation breeds interesting bedfellows. Even now, the race card is being flung out – if you oppose Obamacare, you’re racist. Yep. You could set your watch on it.

I tell you, it all trickles down from the top. If the top guy doesn’t understand what is appropriate, how do you expect his devoted followers to behave?
