Looks like some infighting at the Washington Post.

Liberal columnist for the Post Eugene Robinson writes Wednesday that his colleague, conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer, "should know better" than to compare the U.S.'s recent short-term deal with Iran to the Munich Agreement:

It’s no surprise to see a headline like “Worse than Munich” from Breitbart, the right-wing news site whose writers, suffering from Stage 5 Obama Derangement Syndrome, would object if the president came out in support of pumpkin pie. But even commentators who should know better are resorting to the empty Munich analogy.

Post columnist Charles Krauthammer, appearing on Fox News, said of the agreement, “This is a sham from beginning to end. It’s the worst deal since Munich.” Republican political strategist Alex Castellanos went straight to the historical source, tweeting a link to the speech Winston Churchill made in the House of Commons after Neville Chamberlain returned from Munich.

To Krauthammer, Castellanos and others in the Munich crowd who are not totally ignorant of history, I say this: Take a deep breath, have a sip of decaf and examine your words for meaning. You won’t find any.

The deal with Iran includes a loosening of economic sanctions against the country in exchange for its stalling of nuclear energy development. Krauthammer, among others, immediately compared the deal to the Munich Agreement in which some of Czechoslovakia was handed over to Nazi Germany by Italy and Great Britain.
