"When the Senate Minority Leader of the United States calls something 'a genuine threat to our country,' everyone -- regardless of party -- should listen. Even in the post-9/11 era of overheated language and hyper-partisanship, that kind of declaration from such a powerful public official is not to be taken lightly. So, what horrible menace to our way of life was Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) talking about when he recently uttered those words? Communism? Al-Qaida? Hostile extra-terrestrials? None of the above. He was referring to democracy." (12/16/11)
