The answer is: lower, always, than you can imagine. Yesterday’s Million Vet March was an inspiring protest by patriotic veterans against the Obama administration’s cynical closure of Washington monuments. So did the Democratic Party respond by at least giving the veterans a respectful hearing? Of course not. The Democrats used the occasion to distort the event beyond recognition in order to raise money from those who aren’t well enough informed to know better:

BREAKING: Tea Party protestors wave Confederate flag at White House, tell Obama to “put the Quran down”
Yup. That’s the sum and substance of yesterday’s demonstrations, according to the Democratic Party.
Did you see this?
At today’s rally led by Senator Ted Cruz, Tea Party activists marched to the White House with Confederate flags. It’s simply appalling.
It might be, if that’s what happened. To hear the Democrats tell it, there was a sea of Confederate flags descending on the White House. In fact, there was one guy–count ‘em, one–at the rally who had a Confederate flag. Here he is:
To my knowledge, this person hasn’t been identified. Based on experience, he likely is a Democratic Party plant. But, in any event, who cares? Does one guy define an entire crowd, let alone an entire movement? That would not be true in any other context; certainly not if someone waves a hammer and sickle at a Democratic Party gathering. But the Democrats have no shame.

This wasn’t just an isolated incident.
You’d think one guy is about as isolated as you can get. But for the Democrats, it’s all about fundraising–the one thing they do really well. And they are happy to indulge in whatever lies and distortions it takes.
