"If we can get away from the name-calling"

No, this isn't about local blogs. As you may know, a man associated with Cindy Sheehan bought property for her in Crawford, Tx. so she would have a place to protest the President. In an article in, one anti-war protestor was quoted as saying:

"If we can get away from the name calling and see each other as Americans, that will be how we can heal this nation," Goodnow said.

Now, I don't think that's all we need to "heal this nation", whatever that means, but in any case this was particularly funny coming from the Cindy Sheehan party, part of the liberal name-calling wing of the Democratic Party in America.

Do they think we don't remember, and don't know how to use the internet?

Cindy Sheehan Quotes:

"That lying bastard, George Bush, is taking a five-week vacation in time of war,"

"You get that maniac out here to talk with me in person."

"He died to make your friends richer. He died to expand American imperialism in the Middle East. "

"And I’m glad to hear everybody else’s words, because somebody’s gotta stop those lying bastards.”

"I’m either gonna be in jail or in a tent in Crawford, waiting until that jerk comes out and tells me why my son died."

"So anyway that filth-spewer and warmonger, George Bush was speaking after the tragedy of the marines in Ohio, ..."

“I’m gonna tell them, “You get that evil maniac out here, "

"The only reason Bush wants to stay there is because his buddies are getting rich and feasting off the blood of our children"

"As soft-spoken and sincere-sounding as Paul Wolfowitz is, is there yet any sane adult in this country who's skin does not crawl when this murderous liar opens his mouth and speaks?"

There's plenty more, I wrote several posts about this last year, one with many quotes and citations over at CriticallyThinking.

The left are hypocrits who have made name-calling their primary tactic, and then when it suits them pretend that they just want to get along.

And it's not just Cindy Sheehan. James Webb called a fellow Democrat, Harris Miller, the Anti-Christ, among other things. Many vile invectives were hurled at Democrat and former Vice Presidential candidate Joe Leiberman, including linking him with the Nazis.

The party which used to have grand, although often fatally flawed, ideas, is now reduced to trivial government programs and petty name-calling, all the while calling for some new "civility" that involves them being in power so they don't have to put up with opposition pointing out the paucity of their ideas and the ineptness of their proposals.
