Laurel’s list of inflammatory schoolyard taunts by senior Democratic politicians and their spokesmen reflected the increasingly eliminationist rhetoric which is part of Democratic shut-down scale-back strategy.

Perhaps it’s time for a new list: Mainstream Media Gone Wild, or something similar.

I know that No. 1 on the list should be Mika Brzezinski insisting that Ted Cruz and other Republicans do not love the country.  Via Washington Free Beacon:

By the way, Scarborough conceded way too much by describing Cruz’s methods as “extreme,” even as he defended Cruz against the allegation of not loving the country.

There have been at least 17 government partial “shutdowns” by the way, Mika, including 12 while Tip O’Neill was Speaker.

Other examples for our list? Make our job a little easier, why don’t you.
