The MAL style of argument — don’t debate policy, just yell “racist!”.

“When we said that Steve King … is pro-life and believes in cutting Social Security and voted for the Ryan budget, no one cared,” — this fits in with what I have thought for a long time, that MAList claims that their policies are actually popular, just not well explained, is delusional. The fact that MALists generally have to campaign on conservative themes (just review the Obama 2008 campaign) should settle that matter. But it’s interesting to see that some of the MALists are starting to realize this and accept that only by lie and smear can they will political contests in the USA.
