The Buzz: The Republican National Committee has rejected a proposal from its Democratic counterpart to sign a joint “civility” statement, POLITICO has learned. Various members of the DNC — including Chairman Tim Kaine, Executive Director Jen O’Malley Dillon and Communications Director Brad Woodhouse — contacted their respective RNC counterparts this week in hopes of getting RNC Chairman Michael Steele to co-sign a document with Kaine that, in part, called for “elected officials of both parties to set an example of the civility we want to see in our citizenry.”
OK, you may spit on the ground now.
The whole point was to bring some manners to this beleaguered world. Last week, members of the Tea Party, also known as Tea Baggers by many, spat and swore at members of Congress headed to session.
A couple of Twitter feeds even included clear death threats against the president, which motivated some up close and personal attention from the Secret Service.
Note to idiots: Your freedom of speech does not extend to protect death threats against the prez. Get over it. You see, that form of terrorism presents a threat to the stability of our political processes, and for as convoluted as we can be at times, it's a danged sight better than what you would bring us, that being the complete Christianization of this country and government.
I think I'll spit now.
