Politics is not know for its civility, but this is pushing it to far. Allahpundit points out that this is almost par for the course for Moran. Not really the best strategy though.
It is also pointed out that this has some similarity with a ridiculous statement made by Virginia Foxx (R); "we have more to fear from the potential of that bill passing than we do from any terrorist right now in any country." (clip at the bottom of the post).
"Always good copy, U.S. Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D-Va.) likened the Republican ticket in Virginia this year to Afghanistan's radical Taliban movement in comments broadcast Sunday by WAMU radio.
At a get-out-the-vote rally in Fairfax County, Moran said: "I mean, if the Republicans were running in Afghanistan, they'd be running on the Taliban ticket as far as I can see."
Moran was talking about Republicans Robert F. McDonnell for governor, Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling and state Sen. Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II, who is running for attorney general."
