…Mike Papantonio gives us no choice. The progressive radio host said a number of things today we would label disrespectful and unsupported.
Speaking about what he sees as Democrats failing to speak out forcefully to score political points, he said they do “not understand that you’re dealing with reptiles,” referring to some Republicans.
On climate change, he called the conservatives who deny there is global warming, “nutballs.”
On national security, he said, referring to Republicans saying they could make us safe, “Then we found out the Republicans caused 9-11 and killed 3,000 people.”
The overwhelming majority of politicians are not nutballs. The Republicans did not kill 3,000 people and specific evidence is mandatory when a statement like “Republicans caused 9/11″ is made. Nothing need be said, we think, about the reptile reference.
