Democrat John Bohlinger announced his candidacy for the Montana U.S. Senate seat in next year’s election by comparing the Tea Party to the Taliban.
It’s OK. He’s a Democrat.
The Washington Post reported:

Former Montana lieutenant governor John Bohlinger (D) officially announced his bid for the Senate Wednesday, comparing the tea party’s recent actions to the Taliban and the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese.

“We need to challenge the Tea Party representatives who like the Taliban shut our country down,” Bohlinger told reporters, according to the Billings Gazette.

The paper reported that Bohlinger compared the actions of tea party representatives in the lead-up to the shutdown to the 1941 Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor and the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Umm. John, the Taliban did not attack America on 9-11. Al-Qaeda did.
