Via Greg Hengler. Weiner being abrasive is pretty much the opposite of breaking news, but I am a bit surprised at how subdued MK’s reaction is. One of the reasons Fox viewers love her is her willingness to throw down with the likes of KP; in this case, he’s all but telling her to pipe down and let the grown-up talk and yet she hardly bats an eye. The Megyn Kelly of old would have called him a pencil-neck geek and then cut his mic. Dude, I think she’s going soft.
As for Weiner’s angst over the deal, The One has three problems right now: His base hates the terms of the compromise on the merits, they hate the fact that he didn’t fightfightfight for a better bargain, and of course they hate the fact that they’ll be irrelevant in the House in a few more weeks. Time for the progressive caucus to make a last stand? Maybe!
