Iowa Defense Alliance: Bob Vander Plaats and his "inflammatory" language?

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Defense Alliance

Why is the Iowa Democratic Party so infatuated with the Republican gubernatorial candidates more than nine months away from the primary? I realize that they are probably anything but proud of their standard bearer's performance lately and are trying to distract us from that fact, but come on, accusing Bob Vander Plaats of using "rhetoric of armed extremists" is a bit of a stretch. It's one thing to go after Christian Fong for an ad that the IDP believes is misleading (which might be a fruitful effort if Fong was recognized in more than one area of Iowa) but it's another thing to accuse Vander Plaats of "inflammatory speech" when the issue at hand was about President Obama's health care plan.
