The Huffington Post reports:

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tim Kaine and DNC Vice Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) went after Republicans today for their threat to shut down the government in the next session of Congress, telling reporters in a conference call that the GOP is “playing politics with the lives of the American people.” They also commented on the fractions and infighting in the Republican Party, with Kaine comparing the GOP to cannibals.

“What we’re seeing in the Republican Party is that they invited the Tea Party in and it’s turning into the Donner Party, in some instances, because they’re turning the energy and the ferocity against each other,” said Kaine in response to a question by the Huffington Post, referring to the infamous group of 19th-century American pioneers who eventually had to turn to cannibalism to survive. He added that the divisions have given Democrats “some great opportunities in races that we wouldn’t have absent the Tea Party candidates.”
