Uh, this was a little bizarre. I mean, these are grown men and women. But beyond the obsequiousness, they are of course trying to buck up a president who is under seige, which is nice. Nevertheless, this is over the top.
Later, Chuck Schunmer released a parody which wasn’t particularly clever. Just kind of unusually disrespectful toward a president, and if the Republicans had ever done anything like this to Obama they would have been accused of, I don’t know, treason or something.
