Hey, it's a win-win for Democrats. We'll see 12 days of hype leading up to Great Healer Obama's next call for civility and decency, then when Democrats leap to their feet in applause every 30 seconds as if they were at a somber memorial, it would provide the optics of the entire Congress cheering him on. Consider this the Democrat mantra of the day. And if the GOP doesn't play along, well then they're just being uncivil.
Never let a tragedy go to waste. Naturally, the Boston Globe thinks it's a wonderful idea.
