Default ‘Daily News’ to GOP ‘Traitors’: Drop Dead

http://www.thenation.com/blog/201065...tors-drop-dead

Quote:
Hands down, this is the boldest political headline of the year: under the subhead “GOPers try to sabotage Bam nuke deal” and photos of senators Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Tom Cotton, the New York Daily News yesterday stamped the word “TRAITORS.”

Quote:
Regardless of President Obama’s fecklessness in negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran, 47 Republican U.S. senators engaged in treachery by sending a letter to the mullahs aimed at cutting the legs out from under America’s commander-in-chief.

I'd say that I couldn't believe it, but it's actually exactly the sort of stupidity I've come to expect from Cruz and Paul.

Cruz knows no boundaries and Rand Paul is someone who really seems to exemplify the notion of entitlement as a political actor. That said, I just saw Alec Baldwin in Mercury Rising last night--his ability to channel patriotic unctuousness puts those to shame. Of course, he is a real actor.
