Entirely appropriate - Updated

Sorry to be crude, but the use of the word "terrorists" is entirely appropriate to describe the GOPers conduct. So is thugs, cretins, imbeciles, heartless bastards and soulless assholes. The only difference between what the Republicans did to our country with this fake debt crisis and al Qaeda is they didn't actually physically behead anyone on the TV. But they're doing their damn best to kill our economy. It's a bloodless murder, but it's still a sustained, slow motion homicide.

And it's not just the debt ceiling debacle. It's their entire agenda. There will be poor and elderly people who will die because of their relentless vendetta against the social safety net. And I'm really tired of the media mavens who excuse their terrorism. Or pretend it doesn't exist.

Update: Via Anne Laurie, Dave Weigel posts the civl version of this post. Shorter: If you don't want to be called hostage takers, then stop taking hostages.

In a sane world, you would admit these guys are screwing us all and would be agreeing with me.

In a sane world. What a thought, but the inmate's view of the asylum is always going to be a bit different.

The whine from the crowd that likes to talk don't retreat, reload, targets a chosen person to 'take out' with gun sites, brings up lock and load is too funny.

Funny indeed - anarchists and looters and arsonists talking about civility, but conservative humor is the sort of thing you'll mostly find pickled in formaldehyde.
