Apparently, irony is unknown in liberal circles. That's why the same people who blamed Republicans' inflamed rhetoric for the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords are capable of saying of News Gingrich, "He's a political killer, a gun for hire." This is Chris Matthews, who added that Republicans are "about to begin the nomination for President of a figure who represents the Mephistopheles of what they preach. He is nasty, brutal, ready to fight and kill politically." Besides the violent images, naturally he accuses Republicans of being "ready to bow down before this false god of hatred."
Yeah, Republicans are haters.
