Well Isn't This Special...

Rep. Grayson blasted over anti-Tea Party email showing burning cross
Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson, who is known for lobbing over-the-top rhetorical bombs at his political foes, once again is being accused of taking things too far -- after his campaign sent an email that compared the Tea Party to the Ku Klux Klan while depicting a burning cross.

The email showed a large image of the flaming cross, with the letters "ea Party" etched in to the right of it. The caption read: "Now You Know What the 'T' Stands For."
You stay classy, Democrats. And yes, I'm painting every single one of you with that brush. Scott Brown was painted by Taxagawea with the same brush as Todd Akin after Akin's idiotic rape comment, so the Democrats have established the ground rules here. If anyone in your party says or does something stupid, then anyone else with that affiliation is also guilty of the same thing.

Right? These are your rules, Democrats. If Scott Brown wants to take away a woman's "right" to have an abortion simply because he's in the same party as Todd Akin, then Hillary Clinton thinks that anyone affiliated with the Tea Party is a racist Klansman. That's how it works - you told us so. I heard Elizabeth Warren's commercial blame Scott Brown for something another Senator said, many states away, simply because they were in the same party. Senator Warren, how dare you call me a Klansman.

It's stupid and pointless, isn't it? This whole "gotcha" game - ha ha, someone on your "side" said/did something stupid/inflammatory, so all of you are stupid/inflammatory. Gotcha! It's interesting to see that this is getting no traction outside of Fox (whom the left will tell you is not a real news site, remember) and nowhere else. If Ted Cruz had put out a mailer saying that all Democrats were radical terrorists  because of the actions of Earth First!, I guarantee you that would be top-of-the-fold news for days.

Enjoy Representative Grayson's comments, folks - thanks to the internet they'll be around a long time...

That is all.

So Jay,

Don't sugar-coat it for us. Tell us how you *REALLY* feel. Go on. Be blunt. We, your readers, can take it.

It's stupid, is what it is. It's political debate by kindergarten rules. It's using an accusation against one person to covert an entire group, so as not to have to bother thinking about something that might actually apply.

And come to think of it... what was it, that we used to call it, when someone took the characteristics of a single person and applied those characteristics to an entire group?

I'll give you a hint. What did we call it when Archie Bunker did it?
