On Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu went before a joint session of Congress to share his concerns about current U.S. negotiations with Iran which would (to paraphrase ever so slightly) allow that whackjob terrorist nation to become the Middle East's ubiquitous Starbucks of nuclear weapons in the near future.
One would think that this would make for pretty compelling listening, no matter which political party an elected representative belongs to. But then again, "thinking" is sooOOoo overrated - at least when it comes to the Democrats.
Presidential hopeful and alleged Native American princess Elizabeth "Running Gag" Warren was among the dozens of Dems who boycotted Netanyahu's speech in order to show their support for Obama. Or maybe their support for a nuclear Iran, which is basically the same thing.
Of course, that's not what they claimed to be doing. Democratic Senator Al "Seriously, I Used To Be On Saturday Night Live" Franken said he was skipping the speech because it was a "partisan spectacle" and others sniffed that they found it offensive that Netanyahu would speak to Congress now because he's running for re-election and the whole thing reeks of politics.
It's revealing that they assume everyone running for office must be lying their butts off.
But it's unforgivable that they've chosen to play politics by insulting and ignoring a critically important American ally.
