New low in White House name calling: Bush administration = the Redskins

I didn't notice this gem in Josh Gerstein's piece on the common refrain in Washington “What if George W. Bush had done that?”:

“As our administration makes progress on the agenda that Washington has ignored for too long, we expect we’ll get some news coverage of that progress that we like and some tough coverage that we don’t,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. “It’s not unlike the New Orleans Saints, who are getting lots of good coverage of their perfect record so far — certainly better coverage than the [2-5] Redskins — but it doesn’t mean the Saints have liked every story that’s been written about them since training camp. It goes with the territory.”

Obama and his team have heaped scorn, blame, mockery, derision, and cheap shots onto the 43rd president. But the 'Skins? C'mon!
