McMegan is bright enough to figure out what the S&P nonsense is about (BECAUSE S&P TOLD US), and in a post pointing her fingers at the Republicans for their stupidity, we get this instant classic in beltway “Both Sides Do It”:
And yes, the Democrats had their own role to play–both in starting this monstrous game of tit-for-tat that we’re now all trapped in (liberal pundits moaning about partisanship and norms seem to have wiped the name “Bork” from their consciousness), and in getting the progressive caucus to make tea-party like noises.
Megan was 14 when Robert Bork was nominated. TWENTY FOUR YEARS AGO. But that, and apparently the 12 members of the progressive caucus kvetching helplessly about the deal equals the entirety of the Republican instransigence.
I think the Democrats started it when Lincoln was shot.
