Have We Reached the Nadir of Tax Policy Discourse?

Politics is a dirty sport and while name-calling is certainly standard operating procedure, it seems extra petty when we're discussing about tax policy:

Mitt Romney on Tuesday defended his tax plan after President Obama said it amounted to “Romney-hood” by taking from the poor and giving to the rich, labeling the charge “Obamaloney.”

Since politics is also supposedly a family program (behind closed doors is another matter), we understand the PG tone, but we love a good fight on the playground; who knows where it goes from here.
