Bleeding Heartland: Seeking Republican willing to denounce armed rebellion

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Now that we're done with the Joe "You Lie" Wilson sideshow, I want to talk about a different kind of Republican disrespect for normal political disagreement. Having been raised by a Republican of the now-extinct Rockefeller variety, I am often struck by how extreme the GOP has become. Chuck Grassley and Terry Branstad were on the far right in the early 1980s, but many Iowa conservatives now consider them "moderate" or even "liberal." Mainstream extremism in the Republican Party is depressing on many levels.
