More heat for Rucho's Nazi Tweet

It was either ignorance or deception, take your pick:

Last week, former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum equated Obamacare with Apartheid. This week, state Sen. Bob Rucho joined others who have equated Obamacare to Nazism (among other evils). Their obvious purpose is to inflame an uninformed electorate to be against something using terms representing atrocities. While imperfect, complex and rolled out poorly, to equate something that is trying to help people gain access to healthcare insurance as akin to Apartheid and Nazism portrays ignorance or deception.

Not sure we need to pick. Ignorance and deception probably share equal credit for this effort to enflame, and Rucho's obstinacy in refusing to apologize is evidence he realizes he was guilty of both.

Outrageous!

....but the best thing that's happened to Rucho is the Duck Dynasty guy's idiotic revelations. That will distract his base for weeks to come.

Hah! New photoshop project:

Have a picture of Rucho jazzed up with a Duck Dynasty beard thing.

Rucho is pathetic

One would think that people who voted for him would be ashamed. I am guessing many of them are not. And that's pathetic.

Rucho Robertson. Sounds right.

Bob triples down

on FlashPOINT show, while Joel D. Ford exhibits clarity and remarkable restraint.

Bob's constant blathering did little to dispel the characterization of the person interviewed who called him a "monster" and his tweet "obscene".
