Leave it to Media Matters’ Eric Boehlert to weigh in on the VA scandal with one of his trademark Smart Takes™:

OK, so first of all, that “8 million” count is über-dubious at best:

But what makes Boehlert’s tweet even more ridiculous is that he’s suggesting calls to fire Eric Shinseki stem from Republican outrage, rather than from the fact that a corrupt — and deadly — VA system has flourished under Shinseki’s “leadership.”

He makes it look so easy!

Forgive us, Eric, if we fail to see what’s so outrageous about demanding accountability from our government officials.

Oh, and Eric, for the record:
