Elevating the Political Debate

By January 3, 2008General

The Daily Kos is the premier left-wing political blog, a steady supplier of analysis, commentary and gratuitous nastiness. Today, a member of Congress announces his retirement because of health reasons and gets this:

This is the 18th Republican retirement in the House. It’s an R+10 district, one in which Bush won 61-39 in 2004. So not a big pickup opportunity, just another rat jumping the sinking USS GOP.

Goodness knows, we’re not opposed to the rhetorical jab, but c’mon.
