As Democrats Slam Republicans for Shutting down Fed Government, Dems Shut Down Wisconsin Govt

Truly classic. With fourteen Wisconsin Democrat state senators still out of the state in order to avoid voting on a piece of legislation, Democratic Senators in the Federal government are slamming the Republican House for threatening to shut down the government if they don't get their spending cuts. It's widely accepted that hypocrisy is inherent in the Democratic psyche but this is one big fat hypocritical hairball as they don't even have the ability to use the 'that was then, this is now' spin. It's happening simultaneously.

Via Mark Hemingway of the Weekly Standard:
The obvious point here is that if it's so "reckless" to shutdown the government, why have Wisconsin legislators, the President and the DNC all supported the government shutdown in Wisconsin? Not only that, they have shutdown the government by fleeing the state and breaking the law, not to mention the illegal union strikes shutting down schools and national Democrats helping to organize the angry mob descending on Madison.
Hemingway is referencing a Reuters article that reports the following:
Democratic Senator Charles Schumer criticized House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell over talk among some Republicans that they would rather shut down the government than relent on their spending cut demands.

"Unfortunately Speaker Boehner seems to be on a course that would inevitably lead to a shutdown ... That's reckless," Schumer said on CNN's "State of the Union" program.

"We have said shutdown is off the table ... Boehner, Mitch McConnell, other Republican leaders have not taken it off the table when asked, and there are lots of people on the hard right clamoring for a shutdown."
There has got to be a point at which these hypocrites hit the proverbial brick wall and just surrender. They're not there yet but they're getting ever closer.
