What I find to be interesting in all of this is the dramatic reversal from the past many years...
During the Bush Administration, liberals had to endure the Gasbag pundits, Rush, Hannity, et al., "jokes" about locking up liberals in Guantanamo,
torturing liberals, liberals being un-American, Terrorist-loving, treasonous scum, etc....when Left complained about such rhetoric from the Right,
