Dissent no longer patriotic

But then, you knew that already. Senate Majority Leader Harry “I took one too many punches to the noggin’” Reid on those opposed to Obamacare:

Town hall protesters are "evil-mongers," says Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

Reid coined the term in a speech to an energy conference in Las Vegas this week and repeated it in an interview with Politics Daily.

Such "evil-mongers" are using "lies, innuendo and rumor," to drown out rational debate, Reid said.

"It was an original with me," Reid said of the term. "I maybe could have been less descriptive," he said, adding that "I doubt you'll hear it from me again."

Nevertheless, Reid worked in the word one more time during the interview.

"I feel I haven't done anything to embarrass [my children]," Reid joked. "Except maybe call somebody an evil-monger."

Once upon a time the venom in American politics was largely confined to the fever swamps on both extremes of the political spectrum. The swamp has grown to the point that you now have the Democrat leader in the Senate pumping the far left’s poison right on to Main Street.
