The New Age of Political Civility in action

Did MSNBC's Rachel Maddow just use the term -- GASP! -- "locked and loaded"?? Why yes she did! Scroll to about 4:05 in the video below:

Here's the relevant transcript:

[FORMER RNC COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR DOUG] HEYE: First, I thought you had a good pun when you said depending on what angle you looked at it. I actually watched it at the Tea Party Express webpage. She was looking at that camera. Apparently, the pool camera was a bit off center and was what most people saw, whether they watched it on CNN or on other networks that streamed it on their webpage.

There are two constants that we see, anybody who worked on Capitol Hill can tell you on State of the Union day. One is that Sheila Jackson-Lee, congressman from Houston, is going to be in a seat by probably 9:00 a.m., camped out to get a front row seat.

MADDOW: Eliot Engel, too, him and his mustache, right there, locked and loaded, ready to go. Yes.

I thought we were supposed to stop using such violent metaphors, right? And MSNBC was the among the most vociferous leading the way!

The lovely Miss Maddow muses that maybe the Republican Party doesn't have control of its members. Well, guess what: that's exactly right!

Hube, that doesn't count because liberals and esp. Maddow know nothing about guns and I wouldn't be surprised if she's never even handled one.
