There is nothing symmetrical here

Via Milbank about the Montana Republican party:
Over the weekend, the Montana Republican Party proved wrong those of us who believe our political discourse has gone down the toilet. In fact, our political discourse has gone to a place where there isn’t even plumbing.
Of course Milbank does try and leave a hedge of symmetry in his language, but it’s hard to find symmetry for something like this:
Outside the Montana GOP convention in Missoula stood an outhouse labeled “Obama Presidential Library” and painted as though it had been shot full of holes, according to the local paper. Inside, a fake birth certificate for “Barack Hussein Obama” was stamped with an expletive referring to bovine droppings. A message in the structure gave fake phone numbers for Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi “For a Good Time.”
Just maybe you noticed the disgusting sexism as well. I’m sorry, your just not going to find anything close at any state Democratic party convention anywhere. Sure, some Democrats go too far, but the nutty Republicans are in a class by themselves, and they are actually running state conventions, sadly.
