  •  Boehner is supposed to be the media (3+ / 0-)

    darling here, the Republican leading his caucus to its predictable agenda.  

    When the action shifted to the Senate, Boehner all but disappeared.  He's going up against the White House high up on the castle walls while Cantor and the other Baggers shake the ladder he's standing on from below.  

    Now hard-hittin' rough-n-tumble Joe Biden is called in from the bullpen for the last couple innings.  It's the 31st, and the Speaker of the House is scarcely on the field.  

    Pardon my abrupt shift from the castle siege to the ball diamond.  But these are strange times and surreal metaphor-splitting is called for.

    If John Boehner took a midnight flight back to his district in southwest Ohio and is at this hour waiting for the local La Rosa's Pizza place to open, resolved never to return to Washington again, I wouldn't blame him one bit.
