The Soul of Tact

The Republicans are certainly demonstrating their ability for being a class act. Two examples come to mind.

Exhibit A: The Medina, Ohio, County Republicans sent out a mailer to GOP voters urging them to replace Rep. Betty Sutton (D) by taking her out of the House and putting her “back in the kitchen.”

Exhibit B: Former Vice President Dick Cheney said recently that telling Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) to “go fuck yourself” in 2004 was “sort of the best thing I ever did.”

Misogyny and F-bombs. Now there’s a legacy to be proud of.

HT to Steve Benen.
