Matalin Calls Democrats 'Jihadists' and Social Security and Medicare 'Entitlement Jihads'.

The Republicans never fail to link their opponents to their countries enemies, but this is especially ridiculous.

KING: Let's start, David Axelrod says we're on the one-yard line deep in the red zone. Mary Matalin, you don't like this bill, but are Democrats going to get it?

MATALIN: They are and they're going to get something more, a big loss in the midterms. We've been saying this all along. The more they get, the rougher it's going to be for them in the midterms. And they've made that political calculation that their sacrificial lambs are going to be the blue dogs and they're going to lose all those blue dogs and they may even lose their majority and so be it. They've been on this jihad for 70 years, and they're going to throw over all competitive seats to do it.

And I don't know what kind of party that is. That leaves left and the Democratic Party, the urban centers, this is tyranny of the minority. Two-thirds of the country don't want this. And one-third of these jihadists, these health care jihadists do. I guess that's how democracy in the Obama era works.
And I love how she predicts a Democrat collapse in the mid terms. Republicans love to do this. They secretly believe that all Americans think the way they do and that, should the Democrats deliver on what they promised during the election, that they will be punished for doing so.

Why would anyone listen to someone who speaks of people who want universal health care as "health care jihadists"?
