Via Big Government we have this fine example of democratic civility in action.

  First it was Bush’s head on a pike and now we have MSNBC running videos of buses exploding in a piece about Romney and his six state bus tour . The water carriers of democratic media complex must be very worried to be pulling out the stops this early in the game . What , pray tell , will they have in store for us come October ?

She, too, pushed the Cairo analogy, asserting that the fight in Wisconsin was “about basic democratic rights and the balance of power in America.” “
