Paul Begala: Republicans "Want To Kill Us"

Well... I admit, some of us are starting to get there, Paul.

Keep it up:

Republicans, he said, "want to kill us.

"I was driving past the Pentagon when that plane hit" on Sept. 11, 2001. "I had friends on that plane; this is deadly serious to me," Begala said.

"They want to kill me and my children if they can. But if they just kill me and not my children, they want my children to be comforted -- that while they didn't protect me because they cut my taxes, my children won't have to pay any money on the money they inherit," Begala said. "That is bulls*** national defense, and we should say that."

This bit is from a story with a dateline of June 15. Any question that if a prominent Republican aide had said the same thing, the media would be endlessly replaying it and tut-tutting it?

Karl Rove's remarks about liberals not wanting to fight terrorism got a lot of play. So have Dick Cheney's various red-meat remark.

But this? I only see it on a small conservative web-based news service.

Want to know "what's the matter with Kansas?" Want to know why you keep losing, Paul?

The public understands that Republicans want to fight terrorists, but Democrats only want to fight Republicans.

Thanks to LauraW and The New Editor.
