In January, Congressman and first runner-up in the 1986 Fred Gwynne lookalike contest Steny Hoyer called on Americans to tone down the “intense political rhetoric”:

“Far too many broadcasts now and so many outlets have the intent of inciting people to opposition, to anger, to thinking the other side is less than moral. I think that is a context in which somebody who is mentally unbalanced can somehow feel justified in taking this kind of action. I think we need to all take cognizance of that and be aware that what we say can, in fact, have consequences,” Hoyer said.

By way of Jim Geraghty at NRO, here’s Steny Hoyer this morning:

“I think we’re playing Russian roulette with the nation’s credit-worthiness. Unfortunately, all the chambers seem to be loaded on the House side. They want to shoot every bullet they have at the president.”

I’ve had colds that lasted longer than Hoyer’s “new tone”:

*****

Chuck Schumer was outraged and offended. No, not by anything Hoyer said… but that Republican leaders opened a meeting with a clip from “The Town.”
