Via Breitbart, I would have preferred “atrocious,” “traumatic,” or “nauseating beyond the power of words to express,” but as hysterical overreactions go, “horrific” will do nicely. Jonathan Chait at TNR is warning his pals on the left that sometimes a monkey is just a monkey, but of course they know that already. This isn’t about genuine outrage, it’s about manufactured outrage for political advantage. Which is why we’re all going to remain “cowards” on this subject.
