We got it, AL. What difference does it make? People screw up, people get tortured and killed, so what? Yawn. Grow up, losers. What difference does it make? Loser repubs, you can't do any better, so what difference does it make? Quit whining. And this admin, well, they CLEARLY learned from this unfortunate set of circumstances. I'll bet they did. Anyway, what difference does it make? I like how the standard of performance is the "loser Republicans". That in some weird way gives Obama "quite a bit of latitude". So we have to shut up and tolerate the Democrat version of incompetence because, well, Republicans stunk up the place, and Democrats get to do it too. Probably some logic in there.

It is not that the Reeps are the standard of performance. Rather, that Reep whining is tinny and irrelevant. And will continue as such until at least SOME contrition and a capacity to learn is demonstrated.

Courtesy of Eliana Johnson, here is a video contrasting two interviews: Steve Kroft's love-fest with President Obama and Secretary Clinton vs. Leslie Stahl's much-less-friendly sit-down with Eric Cantor.

I'm not complaining about Stahl's treatment of Cantor.  There's nothing wrong with the press interrogating our elected representatives -- indeed, it's necessary.

What's so contemptible is the difference between the way Democrats and Republicans are treated -- just on the basis of their political affiliations (and that of the MSM).   So-called "journalists" should be ashamed of themselves.

But if you need a cheap laugh, consider what...
