Dave Weigel compares this incident to a caught-on-tape moment from a year or so ago when tea partyists at an Americans for Prosperity meeting cheered when they learned that the United States would not be hosting the 2016 Olympics:
The GOP contenders don’t want pollsters to ignore ’em,
So they can make the debate cut and get a national TV forum.
So their comments get outrageous
And insulting and shameless,
And the only thing that’s lacking is political decorum.
