Wonder if U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) will get the same treatment Sarah Palin did for using the expression, “blood libel“:
Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) on the “lie” of government takeover of health care: “You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually, people believe it. Like blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing, blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing.”
“The Germans said enough about the Jews and people believed it and you have the Holocaust,” Rep. Cohen said.
This is civil discourse?
UPDATE: Readers, please let me know if you come across any Democrat or left-of-center pundit who criticized Mrs. Palin for using the expression will take Mr. Cohen to task. Thanks!
