See if you can find the key razor-in-the-apple word in this passage from a river of Both Siderist bullshit that rolled like the mighty Mississippi right through the Gray Lady yesterday:
For Trump Supporters, the Real Outrage Is the Left’s Uproar Over Comey...When Senator Charles E. Grassley, Republican of Iowa, was asked on Fox News about comparisons that liberals and others have made between the firing of Mr. Comey and the “Saturday Night Massacre” — the ouster of Justice Department officials who refused to carry out President Richard M. Nixon’s order to fire the special prosecutor leading the Watergate investigation — he snapped, “Suck it up and move on.”Democrats should recognize that reaction. For years, they accused Republicans of resisting Mr. Obama’s agenda at every turn, of being spiteful and even hateful as they refused to accept the results of the presidential election. And now, Republicans seem to relish the opportunity to turn the tables.Rush Limbaugh told his listeners on Wednesday, “This kind of irrational hate — this all-consuming hate and derangement, delusion — it isn’t healthy.”
If you said "accused", give yourself a gold star.
Or crack a beer.
Of course the entire, depraved and very public record of premeditated Republican sabotage, slander and sedition for eight straight years under President Obama must now be whitewashed and compacted to a mere partisan accusation leveled by Democrats so it can be slotted into the one millionth steaming Both Siderist turd pooped out by the Serious Media to reassure their Beltway friends and shareholders.
Because at this point Both Siderism is an overflowing media garbage scow full of plague rats that must be tamped down every single fucking day. And if the media ever stops incessantly lying about Democrats and Republicans being pretty much exactly the same -- even for a minute --
Senate Republicans, you will be judged forever by how you check this abuse of power by a lifelong Democrat who took over your party. https://t.co/pD00zSuXzv— Joe Scarborough (@JoeNBC) May 9, 2017
-- those plague rats will start running loose up and down the Acela corridor.
Update: Krugman Concurs (with emphasis added and a h/t to Alert Reader "il"):
...At this point, in other words, almost an entire party appears to have decided that potential treason in the cause of tax cuts for the wealthy is no vice. And that’s barely hyperbole.How did a whole party become so, well, un-American? For this story now goes far beyond Trump....But the more proximate issue is the transformation of the Republican Party, which bears little if any resemblance to the institution it used to be, say during the Watergate hearings of the 1970s. Back then, Republican members of Congress were citizens first, partisans second. But today’s G.O.P. is more like a radical, anti-democratic insurgency than a conventional political party.The political analysts Thomas Mann and Norman Ornstein have been trying to explain this transformation for years, fighting an uphill battle against the false equivalence that still dominates punditry. As they note, the G.O.P. hasn’t just become “ideologically extreme”; it is “dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.”So it’s naïve to expect Republicans to join forces with Democrats to get to the bottom of the Russia scandal — even if that scandal may strike at the very roots of our national security. Today’s Republicans just don’t cooperate with Democrats, period. They’d rather work with Vladimir Putin...
