McTantrum gets a spanking

The dust up started Monday when McCain said the healthcare reform had so angered Republicans that they would not cooperate with Democrats anymore.
"There will be no cooperation for the rest of the year," McCain said. "They have poisoned the well in what they've done and how they've done it."
Gibbs responded today, comparing McCain to a six-year-old.
"I find it curious that not getting your way on one thing means you've decided to take your toys and go home," Gibbs said. "It doesn't work well for my six-year-old. I doubt it works well in the United States Senate, because we have issues that are important for his constituents and for all of America."
Good on Gibbs for not legitimizing McCain's act by pretending that stomping one's feet and holding one's breath is acceptable behavior from a grown adult. There will assuredly be all manner of feigned outrage over the "lack of respect" shown by Gibbs.  These pearl-clutchers need to be made to answer whether or not a U.S. Senator folding his arms and pouting is a position worthy of respect.
