Republican staffer calls for acid attacks against Democratic female Senators

Meet Jay Townsend, American Taliban.
More evidence of the sickness consuming the Republican Party as it lurches farther and farther to the right:
Jay Townsend, a campaign spokesman for Republican Rep. Nan Hayworth (NY-19), weighed in on a local Facebook discussion with a violent comment about Democratic women in Congress, and his suggestion is now earning the congresswoman condemnation from one of her Democratic challengers.

The Facebook page, called NY19 U.S. House of Representatives Discussion Center, encourages “civil multi-partisan discussion about issues impacting citizens of New York’s U.S. House District represented by Republican Congresswoman Nan Hayworth.” On it, a question about gas prices was also critical of Hayworth. Townsend responded to one commenter, Tom, by bringing up the “war on women” and suggested they “hurl some acid at those female democratic Senators.”

This is out of the mouth of a paid campaign staffer--a spokesman no less!

I guess one of the differences between you and the trolls at TPM. and Republicans is that Republicans are smart enough to know the difference between speaking figuratively and literally.

Apparently Republicans are not smart enough to know that it is unacceptable, offensive, and repugnant whether stated figuratively or literally. You apparently fail to understand it is a message of hate against women.
