After the election I thought at least we have the house, if they can stand firm. So now we have boehner punishing Conservative Congressmen. I wish my Congressman was Conservative enough to be punished.
You may recall that there were a certain contingent of conservatives who were so disenchanted with the slim pickings for prez that they espoused a “quick-death” approach wherein we sit out the election and let the ‘rats win preferring to end it now rather than letting it linger (and torturing us all in the process). I understood the sentiment even if I couldn’t willingly go along with it.
It looks like that is what we got anyway.
(Enjoy the ride - it’s all downhill from here)
