After the White House announced Monday night that acting Attorney General Sally Yates had been relieved of her duties for refusing to enforce an executive order that, in her expert legal opinion, was not “wise or just,” Fox News commentator Howard Kurtz began counting the seconds before pundits started making comparisons to Richard Nixon’s “Saturday Night Massacre.”

Even counting the seconds, Kurtz was already too late, as “massacre” was already on its way to becoming the buzzword of the night.

Is he crying?

By all means, resist … calling Yates’ firing a massacre.

No? What if it were two people fired?
