All quiet on the civility front

It was only a few weeks ago but yet it seems like ages. We were being lectured on civility by a horde of talking heads and pundits. The hordes have since fallen silent though much incivility has occurred. All quiet on the civility front. The guns are silent. Pundits AWOL. Hysterical TV anchors and anchorettes mum. As if it was long, long ago in a different era.

Their silence about civility is, one suspect, the silence of support even as we are getting lessons in goodwill from the left-

So that's what the Democratic Party meant by "civility!" If they had made that clear in the beginning, it would have saved a lot of trouble.
