Martin Eagle: Emotional Marcus

April 28, 2014 

Regarding the April 14 column “ Democrats’ revolting demagoguery”: Ruth Marcus seems to equate stating facts and telling the truth with “revolting demagoguery.” This is understandable given that Republicans find both facts and truth to be anathema (this, too, is not demagoguery but a mere statement of fact). Actually, the only ruthless demagoguery to be found in her tirade is hers.
