I follow the GOP on Twitter. They posted this today:

As with many issues Republicans and Democrats disagree. But does anyone actually think “Harry Reid supports trapping kids in failing schools?” It’s a ridiculous claim.
Why do politicians throw Molotov cocktails at each other? Where is civil discourse?
It’s this kind of inflammatory rhetoric on both sides that keeps anything from being accomplished. Sentences like this make compromise or any kind of reasonable achievement nearly impossible.
There are loads of ways to disagree without making foolish claims like this, which no one should take at face value. You don’t take them at face value, do you?
Blogger’s note: I chose this Republican tweet as a demonstration, but if you have a similar Democratic claim, please include it in the comments. This crap is, unfortunately, bipartisan.
