John Podesta was just named as a new senior-level adviser to President Obama last week, but he's already ruffling Republican feathers.

In a profile published late Tuesday by Politico Magazine, Podesta is quoted comparing Republicans to the infamous cult led by Jim Jones, who was responsible for the 1978 cyanide poisoning of more than 900 of his followers in Guyana.

They're pathetic, have nothing of value to say so their only defense is a rotten, dirty offense. Keep it up, Dems, and before you know it they'll have voters so turned off that even the Republicans might win, despite their best attempts to screw it up.

So says the unionized government employee who pulls the anti-labor lever at every opportunity.

You aren't helpless, you're just challenged.

You think he's the only one? You'd be surprised at how many people HAVE to be in a union to do their chosen job...but disagree with what the upper level union fat cats chose to do with their dues.

Not that it matters to you. You just wanted to pathetically try to insinuate that NJ is a hypocrite.

Too bad you've got the market cornered on that.

Podesta is gunning for votes and speaking to the lowest common denominator voters...liberals. They love hearing these types of comparisons.
