Andrew Kaczynski — Republicans Now Attacking Florida Democrat For Supporting Simpson-Bowles

You knew this was coming.
The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has taken an odd course in the Florida special election to replace Republican Rep. Bill Young after his death in October of last year: The NRCC is bashing Democratic candidate Alex Sink for supporting Simpson-Bowles, a deficit reduction plan Republicans most often attack President Obama for abandoning or ignoring.

"Alex Sink supports a plan that raises the retirement age for Social Security recipients, raises Social Security taxes and cuts Medicare, all while making it harder for Pinellas seniors to keep their doctors that they know and love," Katie Prill, a spokeswoman for the NRCC said, according to the Sunshine State News. "Sending Alex Sink to Washington guarantees that seniors right here in Pinellas County are in jeopardy of losing the Social Security and Medicare benefits that they have earned and deserve."

Well, ya can't win, I guess. Just the other day I read how the "very progressive" Alan Grayson was complaining how Republicans were attacking him for voting to raise the debt limit. "It's just not true," Grayson said, "I voted against raising it." Liars, morons, cowards. Take your pick.

Cringe worthy.

You just can't make this stuff up.

Nor imagine that our electorate falls for it.
