For months the left has been sniping at me, trying to use aspects of my personal life in an attempt to destroy me, both in the world of social media and professionally. The volume has continued to rise until it reached nearly a fevered pitch again today, as it has many times in the past. Any idea of civil debate in this country has come pretty much to an end, yielding to the politics of personal destruction. Coming on the heels of a tragedy in Arizona where the left worked so hard to place the blame on lack of civility, this is no surprise. The left has always been about lack of civility and personal attacks for as long as I’ve been in politics.
And this is my Joe McCarthy moment. I look at you on the left, and I ask, “Have you no decency?”
