  •  Raul Labrador flexible? (1+ / 0-)

    His shitty, extremist, non-compromising attitude pretty much sums up how dysfuntional the Republican party has become- plus, he's not that bright.

    I'm pretty tired of being told what I care about.

    •  Labrador is throwing a hissy fit. (1+ / 0-)

      He's been eyeing immigration reform--at least his diluted version of it--as a way to keep himself in the national spotlight and continue his string of appearances on the Sunday teevee talk shows. He loves the publicity.

      He's been trying to position himself, especially with his committee assignments, to be the leader among the GOP in the House on the issue.

      But those dang senators, including some from his own party, leaped out ahead of him. Not only is their proposal better than anything Labrador would put forth, they're getting the publicity instead of him. Both are unforgivable in his eyes.

      His strategy was, instead of putting together an omnibus bill that covers the whole problem, to dribble out a bunch of single bills covering small aspects. It drags out the issue and gives him many more Sunday AM talk show appearances.

      But now he's been relegated to the back of the bus on the issue and he's throwing a teetee about it, stamping his foot.


      When atlatls are outlawed, only outlaws will have atlatls.
