John Boehner

Send In the Clowns

Watching the Republicans’ interrogation of Hillary Clinton this week, I was reminded of that scene in the movie Animal House where a fraternity freshman gets his butt paddled with a stick and says, “Thank you, sir, may I have another?” The only difference is that in this instance the GOP has been both the giver

Idiot Wind

Sometimes I think I must be dreaming. Just when you thought the Republican Party couldn’t get any screwier, they go from the ridiculous to the unbelievable. It’s like that scene in Space Balls when the ship jumps to Ludicrous speed. That’s pretty much where the GOP is today, thanks to the announcement that Majority Leader

John Boehner Calls It A Night

Well, that was unexpected. John Boehner, the beleaguered and sometimes reluctant Speaker of the House, announced that he is resigning from Congress, effective October 30.

Better Dead Than Read

Kicking the Can Down the Road

Well at least John Boehner managed to get a stay of execution. With the DHS set to shut down at midnight, the House passed a one-week funding extension. In other words, they kicked the can down the road. Unable to muster the votes needed to get a three-week extension and fearful that putting the Senate

Mitch McConnell Punts It Back To The House

I’ll say this for Mitch McConnell: He may be a hypocritical hack with the spine of a worm, but he can count. He knew he didn’t have the votes to get the House’s ridiculous DHS funding bill through the Senate. Democrats successfully stopped him four times; they were prepared to stop him forty times if

John Boehner’s Dangerous Game of Chicken

Some people never learn from their mistakes. People like John Boehner. A little over a year ago the Speaker of the House allowed a small faction of his conference to shut down the government and force a near debt-ceiling default over funding of the Affordable Care Act. It was a tremendous political blunder that accomplished
