Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me and I welcome their hatred.-FDR

The "Bidenization" of Democratic Labeling

Michael Kinsley said that "A gaffe is when a politician tells the truth." Joe Biden has been known for saying lots of crazy stuff, some true, some stupid. But whether or not Biden really called teabaggers "terrorists", the cat is out of the bag and I think it's time to examine that claim not as an ad hominem, but as a legit term for Republicans/conservatives/teabaggers.

For example, look at all that shit that went down last week over raising the debt ceiling that almost led to the country defaulting. Even then, it still damaged the economy and took attention off other matters. Yes Obama should have unilaterally raised the ceiling himself by citing the 14th Amendment, but then again Republicans shouldn't have stood in the way either. They forced through trillions of unnecessary cuts without fancying raising taxes. That IMHO is the definition of terrorism, economic terrorism.

Let's not forget that they support violence and religious extremism that are a part of terrorism, so the pieces are all in place for us calling them "terrorists" (or "tearrorists/All Whita" if you will.)

So now that they are officially terrorists, what do we do? Should Obama just make the Republican Party illegal as a terrorist organization or should we collectively simply not negotiate with them, work to vote them out of office, and treat them like shit as if they are terrorists? I guess we should do the latter and hope for the former.
