Skip to comments.Video: Dem calls for pitchforks if GOP extends current tax rates in deal? (Is a deal near?)

Say, remember when Tea Party displays of pitchforks demonstrated the violence inherent in the Right? Meet Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) .. Tea Partier and radical right-winger. Fox News highlights McCaskill’s whiny response at Republican insistence on keeping all of the current tax rates in place for at least the next 2-3 years, apparently believing that this means that people keeping their own money is somehow a gift from the government. If Republicans oppose more government confiscation, McCaskill argues, then people really should start grabbing pitchforks, or something:

McCaskill may be offering this cheap demagoguery now, but I suspect she’ll be singing a different tune in about twelve to eighteen months. She has to run for re-election in 2012 in a state that has returned to its conservative roots. Missourians know the difference between a tax cut and a tax hike; the latter is when one has to pay more than they did before, which is exactly what McCaskill wants to happen for small business owners. It’s the government’s money, dammit, and those pesky Republicans want to stop us from taking it!
Fox also reports that a deal is near to extend the tax rates in exchange for extending jobless benefits once again. That’s probably not a bad trade, even if the latter means more deficit spending in the short run. The GOP probably won’t get a better deal in January anyway, not with Democrats still running the Senate and Obama in the White House. Better for everyone to cut that deal now and get rid of the uncertainty rather than wait for another few weeks of Democratic stalling and end up in the same place.
From approximately ten years ago. Fred articles on race and potential future civil war:
I heard this halfwit say the country cannot afford it to 'give rich people' money.
I'd ask how someone so stupid could get elected to congress but I already know the answer; there are enough people who are even more stupid who vote.
McCaskill is one of those commie pinheads who wants a BIG nanny state government but wants someone else to pay for it. What a jackass. What about “the rich’s” right to not be forced into paying for a BIG socialist government that they don’t support or believe in?
grab a noose and march on his office.
I remember watching election returns back in 2006. Sen. Jim Talent was comfortably ahead most of the evening. Then they decided to extend voting hours in St. Louis alone. Then voila. Like pulling a rabbit out of a hat, McCaskill emerges victorious. I hope they don’t fall for this trick again. A classic method in how Democrats steal elections.
This is after the Internationalist RAT party got their a$$ handed to them on a golden plate. These loons think all of a sudden everyone is in favor of a lame duck congress? They need to put down their crack pipes.
How about the wood shed?
Seriously, liberals are just people who weren’t spanked enough as a child.
Folly is bound in the heart of a child; the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. Prov 22:15
Clair, do you want a pitchfork? The only one available is still dangling from 0h0m0’s ass since 11/02/10.
You can’t take it. 0b0z0 kinda enjoy it where it is.
