As Twitchy told you, Obama flack and perennial dirtbag Ben Rhodes is gleefully anticipating the obituaries of Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and Mike Pence. GOP Rep. Steve Scalise — who very nearly did die — took offense to Rhodes’ callousness, which Jonathan Chait found amusing for some reason:
GOP. Whip offended by implication fellow Republicans leaders are not immortal https://t.co/LnwO2caZ1h

Since Chait doesn’t seem to understand why Scalise has good reason to find Rhodes’ tweet so repellent, Glenn Reynolds helpfully rewrote Chait’s tweet for him:
GOP Whip who was shot by a Democrat, takes offense at eliminationist rhetoric aimed at his colleagues. FIFY. https://t.co/Gi97tEwGeC

There. That’s better.
