I cruised over to the Politico this afternoon and I was greeted by this particularly odious bit of excrement served up by delusional Dhimicrat shill David Axelrod:

Excuse me?

White House senior adviser David Axelrod described Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s reaction to the State of the Union address on Sunday as one of a growing number of “unusual outbursts” during speeches.

“In this weird political season we have become accustomed to unusual outbursts in the chamber during these speeches,” Axelrod said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Alito caused a stir by apparently mouthing “not true” when President Barack Obama criticized a Supreme Court ruling that the president said would open the floodgates to corporate money in elections.

Axelrod declined to say whether Alito’s behavior was appropriate. 

Outburst?  Outburst?  What outburst?

From the Random House Dictionary:

out-burst  noun

1.  a sudden and violent release or outpouring: an outburst of tears.

2.  a sudden spell of activity, energy, etc.

3.  a public disturbance; riot; outbreak.

4.  a bursting forth; eruption.

Alito’s “response” was mouthed, imperceptibly.  The “outburst” came from the members of Congress assembled, many of whom are attorneys themselves, applauding in approval of the disrespectful and unprofessional condemnation of the Court with lies easily dispelled by a simple reading of the Citizens United case.  The “unusual” part of those events was a sitting President using the State of the Union speech to criticize a co-equal branch of government not afforded the opportunity to rebut the President’s untrue claim and undeserved criticism.  It was equally unusual to see a sitting President attack guests at a government function, or for an attorney to recklessly criticize the judiciary without regard to the truth, as a means to damage the perception of the integrity of the judicial process, and not see the ABA, the self-appointed voice and conscience of the legal profession so much as say “Boo!”, or the state bar association that made the President an honorary member issue an admonition for this unprofessional act.

Only in a world gone mad would people be talking about the “outburst” of the victim a President who used an institution to act in a churlish manner.  Only in a press devoid of professional integrity, would there even be an implication that a Justice who mouthed something quietly in response to an attack rooted in lies, at an event where such attacks would be inappropriate even if it wasn’t unprofessional and unethical.   Congratulations, “Meet The Press”.  Thank you for playing to the dumbest common denominator.
