19. If you want to take it to that level, acts of "If I'm going down I'm taking...

...a crapload of them with me" have been around for the entire history of warfare.

Yes, I've known about Iida's dive since reading Walter Lord's Day of Infamy sometime back when Jimmy Carter was president. And yes, "kamikaze" has become a colloquial term for just about any suicidal attack. What does that have to do with Cruz?

When Tailgunner Ted starts paying more attention to what does and does not constitute things like "socialist" or "communism", and stops accusing people of sedition just because they have a different political view, then I'll be more willing to cut him some slack on his looseness with other terminology.
