As Alanis Morrisette would say: "Isn't it ironic?" Marsha Blackburn and Dana frickin' Rohrabacher insinuating anyone else is in the service of dark masters? Via Mediaite:

A CNN interview with GOP Reps. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and Marsha Blackburn(R-TN) exploded on Monday as anchor Ashleigh Banfield tore into the House GOP conference over what appears to be a likely government shutdown over the effort to defund Obamacare through the budget process.

[...] Banfield pressed Rohrabacher over why the House has decided to make this stand over Obamacare in grave and serious terms.

“Well, have you addressed that to the Senate?” Rohrabacher replied. “You are acting and telling the listeners that we republicans are holding this up, and the government is going to shut down. We have actually reached out to the democrats with a compromised position…”

“Don’t you dare put this back on me,” Banfield replied. “You can’t make something up.”

Both Banfield and the House members talked over each other while Rohrabacher accused Banfield of having them both on her show to “give us a tirade.”

“You can’t make up facts, sir,” Banfield pressed.

Rohrabacher accused Banfield of playing the same game the Senate is playing, refusing to even talk to the House GOP about their compromise which would continue to fund the government. “Whose bidding are you doing?” he asked.

Banfield insisted that she only did not invite Democrats on her program, only Republicans.
