Here’s the GOP idea of how to promote national unity:
Compare unnamed opponents (“the angry left”) to the enemy torturers at “the Hanoi Hilton,” and accuse them of wanting to “break John McCain’s resolve to do what is best for his country.” Better assign that line to the President; he doesn’t have any credibility left to lose.
But that’s not specific enough. So accuse the opposition Presidential candidate of favoring infanticide. Nice, avuncular Fred Thompson can stick the shiv in without looking mean.
If that doesn’t bring the country together, I don’t know what will.
