Democrat Civility in Wisconsin

From Outside the Beltway, this little anecdote underscoring the considerable progress Wisconsin Democrats are making in the direction of more civil discourse:

Well this isn’t exactly new tone:
Last Friday…. after the Assembly voted to engross the Budget Repair Bill, [Wisconsin State Rep. Gordon] Hintz turned to a female colleague, Rep. Michelle Litjens and said: “You are F***king dead!”
I suppose this is acceptable because he was fighting for “the people,” right?
Hey, who does Hintz think Litjens is, anyway, Sarah Palin? If a Republican had dared to say this, he'd well and truly be F***king dead right now, ya think?

We report, you decide.

Meanwhile, remember Wonker's First Rule of Partisan Politics: Being a Democrat is never having to say you're sorry.
