Remember when the Democrats were against the “Politics of personal destruction”?

DeLay commit suicide T-shirt
Remember a few years ago when the Democrats were ranting about accusing their opponents of practicing the “politics of personal destruction”? Bill Clinton used the phrase after his impeachment, Hillary Clinton used it in her book, Richard Gephardt used it, and I think Gore did too but I can’t find a reference offhand.

Yet, now you can buy a T-shirt that seems to imply the Democrats have changed positions on this, and now favor the politics of personal destruction. Preferably, personal self-destruction. For now, anyway.

(Disclaimer: I provide the link to the T-shirt site not because I think you should buy the T-shirt, but so you believe me that it’s for sale.)

UPDATE (2:45pm): The product seems to have been removed from the web site.

    All I can say is, there is a general lowering of the class of people. They don’t even have the reservation or character within themselves to keep their hatred discrete. There is an impending evil infiltrating people.

    I wonder what the next few years will bring? burning down their opponents houses?

    To be fair, this is really the Politics of Personal Self-Destruction.
