I've been bracing for a tear in the space time continuum that comes when any liberal accuses anyone of being childish, like Harry Reid has done with Eric Cantor. I guess I'm relying on the same science that proves the globe's thermostat is out of control.
Part of me wants to defer to Reid on this since he has so much experience being childish himself.....like when he equated opponents of ObamaCare to antebellum slave owners, or when he said Obama could easily flip the switch on which accent?
To make matters worse, he was piling on top of what Chuck Schumer, OF ALL PEOPLE, was saying about Cantor. This is the same guy who mentored Anthony Weiner.
If guilt by association isn't your cup of tea then, this is the same guy who called a flight attendant a "bitch" for having the temerity to do her job and make him hang up his cellphone during takeoff.
Why was Eric Cantor childish? Well, because he "made" Obama walk away from debt negotiations. The President of the United States finally takes a powder from being spectator-in-chief to get his hope-lotioned hands dirty, cries about how EVEN REAGAN wouldn't have to put up with herding cats, takes his ball and goes home.
And the Republican is childish.
A tangled slinky is less twisted than that logic. This would be the first time in history where if Cantor retorted "I know you are but what am I" and nobody would think he was being childish.
