Seriously, you all need to calm down. This VA "scandal" will blow over soon enough, and we can all get back to talking about things that really matter, like climate change. Here's how it will happen. In the coming weeks, Democrats/liberals will offer the following blame-shifting explanations:

The scandal "predates" Obama (i.e., blame Bush)

(Note: Obama has been the president since 2009.)

Republicans are "politicizing" the scandal

Republicans are "overreaching" 

Republicans want to cut VA funding/hate veterans

Maybe the Koch brothers are to blame?

That what's Senator Bernie Sanders, a proud socialist from Vermont and chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs, has tried to argue, in rather incoherent fashion:

Veterans should stop whining

Of course, once enough time has passed and the media has grown bored of covering VA news, it will become jejune to even bring it up. They're looking into it. Dude, that was like two months ago.
