New Obama henchman John Podesta, co-founder of the Media Matters cult with Hillary Clinton (she said so herself) really stepped in shit today by referring to the GOP as a cult worthy of Jonestown. The condemnation was swift.

Dem Rep. Ryan was killed in Jonestown. His then-aide, Rep. Speier was shot 5x. Podesta's comments show them no honor.

Leftist cult leader Podesta realizes the error of his way and is trying to worm his way out of it.
In an old interview, my snark got in front of my judgment. I apologize to Speaker Boehner, whom I have always respected.

He weakly calls it an “old” interview. It was from earlier this fall, apparently. Yeah, really old.
Podesta, whose official mandate includes enforcement of numerous executive orders on emissions and the environment, suggested as much when he spoke with me earlier this fall about Obama’s team. “They need to focus on executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress,” he told me.
What an asshole.
“Real reporter” Glenn Thrush offers up this weaksauce when asked why this wasn’t reported:
@JammieWF earlier this fall, not previously published
