  •  I'm betting that behind closed doors (7+ / 0-)

    we are getting pretty close to "Vince Foster/Ron Brown was Murdered" and "Bill Clinton was a drug dealer/Chelsea Clinton was the product of rape" fever swamp territory with the House GOP caucus.

    This is governing via conveniently pouring gasoline on a fire by the GOP House leadership. While it is certainly true that they are just fucking themselves royally down the line with this shit, we still have to get through the next few years.

    I'm betting that 2016, 2018, and 2020 are not going to be kind to the Teahadi. But we have to get there.

    Even with all the crazy batshit, it's not inconceivable that the GOP could take the Senate majority and retain the House in 2014.

    At that point, all of this cowardly tossing of red meat spiked with conservative crack might blow up in all of our faces as Americans.

    Boner is just feeding that beast in lieu of bucking it and having to deal with the headache of trying to catherd Teahadi and do his job incredibly badly.

    I'm thinking that, between 2014 and 2016, even if we do keep the Senate majority, the circus is coming to town, and although we will survive it, and come out on top, it's going to be fucking nuts while it lasts.

    I am a Loco-Foco. I am from the Elizabeth Warren wing of the Democratic Party.
