'This is Like a Holy Jihad to Keep the Tax Cuts Going'

Memo to Democrats: Just keep talking like this. Compare Americans who want to keep some of their money to terrorists is always a surefire winner at the polls.
Republicans are fighting to extend tax cuts for high earners with the intensity of a "holy jihad," a Democratic senator charged Monday.

Sen. Ted Kaufman (D-Del.) said he didn't see any room for compromise with Republicans on the extension of income tax cuts that are set to expire at the end of the year, blaming the GOP for being unflinching on tax rates.

"We talk about bending — it's incredible. There's no bending! Pick up your morning Washington Post and find out what Republicans are willing to bend on," Kaufman said during an appearance on CNBC. "This is like a holy jihad to keep the tax cuts going."
Next thing you know some media babblehead will say Kaufman is insulting jihadist by comparing them to Republicans.
