It’s time for Dave Weigel’s “quote of the day,” everybody! This one comes from an unnamed “Dem member of Congress” regarding the developing situation in the Middle East:
Quote of the day so far, from a Dem member of Congress reacting to Iran’s limited strikes: “You need two crazy leaders to start a war, and fortunately, Iran doesn’t have one.”
— Dave Weigel (@daveweigel) January 8, 2020
How fortunate for Iran.
This is the sort of gibe that probably sounded great in the speaker's head when he was conjuring it up on the fly, but which is appalling when actually printed on the page. https://t.co/38wmkCpwk4

Inquiring minds can’t help but want to know: which speaker would that be?
Which member of Congress https://t.co/M7iQYO0Sp9

If it's such a great quote then surely the person can be identified. https://t.co/sQz9Hya3gl

Who was it? We have a right to know. https://t.co/P74IJoHoSc

Very curious if the Dem member of Congress got any pushback from the reporter when he said this. Also fascinating to grant an elected official anonymity for something so absurd.

You’d think this anonymous Democratic member of Congress would want to go on the record with such a clever line, wouldn’t you?
Isn't Iran just great, Dave?

More cheers for the Iranian leadership. https://t.co/2uBQ32nAk1

Guess we really shouldn’t expect anything different.
Iran's leader murdered over 1,000 of his own people during peaceful protests last month, but at least he's not Trump! https://t.co/WNzWSBkyqt

Same thing with Democrats praising the restraint of an Iranian leader who is responsible for countless deaths, including killing 1600+ peaceful Iranian protestors, less than a month ago: https://t.co/hGm4pk2sm0 https://t.co/VIfb7A2RDa

Dems and the brutal theocratic regime in Iran should get a room. The love between them is real. Of course the Iranian regime would murder the gay Dems in the room, but the shared hatred of Trump would somehow keep them together. https://t.co/fjqbVId3IV

Super-cool of Dave to protect the speaker’s anonymity, though. Very stunning and brave and Guardian-of-Truth-like.
Just a repugnant statement, in every way https://t.co/FMbAU22xXs

Remember when Dems and lefties lost it on Nikki Haley for pointing out that only Democratic politicians are mourning the death of Iranian terrorist mastermind Qasem Soleimani?

Looks like she was right.

And looks like Democrats are determined to lose spectacularly this November.
In kind contribution to re-elect Trump.

Dems siding with the "death to America" chanters in Iran and defending a terrorist is going to work out great for them in November. Keep it up, guys! https://t.co/g7bYnbOMSi
