From Steve Benen:
…in the 21st century, a Republican senator who wants to convey a basic observation about rhetorical excesses, has to do so anonymously. We’ve reached the point at which a GOP senator wants to say that “tone matters,” but can’t quite bring himself/herself to say so on the record…
That speaks as loudly as scrubbing your web site and someone else mumbling about “surveyor’s symbols”. Also, too.
