The New Civility Strikes Again

I think we are starting to understand what the Democrats meant by the “new civility.” “New civility” means “old-time gutter politics.” The latest practitioner is Congresswoman Louise Slaughter, who interpreted the Republicans’ anti-abortion rider to a small and desultory crowd of pro-abortion activists:
