A Sacred American Tradition

So, like, will he soil his Star Spangled, Red, White and Blue Depends if Chuckie doesn't get his way? I suppose you could attribute it to one too many blows to the brain from a lifetime of stunts gone awry...but Chuck is just following the time honored sacred American political tradition of sheer hyperbolic assholelianism.

“[Thomas Jefferson is] a mean-spirited, low-lived fellow, the son of a half-breed Indian squaw, sired by a Virginia mulatto father … raised wholly on hoe-cake, bacon, and hominy, with an occasional change of fricasseed bullfrog.” 

personal, ad hominem attacks, brought to you at least since 1800 … 

John Adams’ campaign’s prediction of the results of Thomas Jefferson’s election, 1800 :
 “Murder, robbery, rape, adultery, and incest will all be openly taught and practiced, the air will be rent with the cries of the distressed, the soil will be soaked with blood, and the nation black with crimes.”
