Red meat, flung from the left

Dwight Pelz

All kinds of bloody red meat was dispensed, according to a piece in Publicola, by Washington Democratic Chair Dwight Pelz – to the extent of calling for the ouster of one of President Obama’s cabinet members (Education Secretary Arne Duncan).

Some really rough rhetoric – over the top stuff – on Republicans (“they’re evil. These guys are fascists.”).

There was also this well-crafted bit: ““There was a joke 20 years ago, when [then-Russian president Boris] Yeltsin was in power: ‘What did capitalism do in Russia in five years that communism couldn’t do in 50 years? The answer was, make communism look good. What is it that the Republicans can do that Democrats can’t do? Make Democrats look good.”
