Republican Hawks and the Iran Deal

Dana Milbank tears apart Republicans who tweeted all these things about the new interim deal with Iran without even knowing what was in it:
Ari Fleischer: The Iran deal and our allies: You can’t spell abandonment without OBAMA

Ron Christie: Precisely. . .  A disgraceful deal.

Rep. John Culberson (R-Tex.): Worse than Munich. (with a link to a Breitbart News article with that headline and images showing Secretary of State John Kerry and his Iranian counterpart juxtaposed with Hitler and Chamberlain)

Rep. Allen West: America just had a modern-day Neville Chamberlain moment

Rep. Michelle Bachmann: total surrender by Obama administration
I mean, why wait for the details? This crew already knew without hearing that they were against the deal, and on Twitter being first is everything. It was a good hour between the first announcement of the deal and the beginning of Obama's speech explaining it, and in modern politics an hour like that can't be wasted. Better just to start denouncing the deal right away before somebody else beats you to it.
