Ya think?

Jonathan Martin at Politc-ho:

...

From establishment pillars to tea party leaders, the emerging consensus is that the vituperative attacks in Florida went beyond the traditional back-and-forth, cresting with Gingrich’s robo-call asserting that Romney had vetoed legislation denying Holocaust victims kosher food.

But the part I liked was this:

...

“The idea that we would attack each other like this is frustrating and painful,” said Lenny Curry, chairman of the Florida Republican Party, referencing Gingrich’s assault on Bain and Romney’s attack on Freddie Mac. “My face was red with anger when I watched one of these discussions on television because this is not what Republicans are about.”

...

Yes it is, Lenny. The thing that makes you angry is that the American people, thanks to this monkey house shit fight, will see what the Republicans are really all about. Just a buncha whiny teenagers with a mean streak a mile wide.

Sadly, I don't think the spectacle will teach the American people what the Republicans are all about. Even if it does, the Americans will have a short memory as usual.
