The DCCC has introduced a new tone-friendly version of a political target map.
They're calling it a "pinpoint map" in fundraising emails. Get it? The Republicans they're targeting pinpointing for defeat are identified by blue thumb tacks rather than provocative, violence-encouraging bullseyes -- which they've used in the past. This way, in the event that a deranged, apolitical nut (who, incidentally, might never actually see this map) carries out a horrific act, they won't be blamed for it. Or something.
Recapping: The Left is firmly committed to superficial forms of civility generated by a manufactured political non-sequitur. Meaningful, real life civility? Not so much (slight content warning):
UPDATE: Twitter's @jamesgelfand mentions that "pins are sharp and can hurt." We must denounce this explicit call to violence!
