    He is a buffoon and an incompetent of the highest order. In any other government, he'd be given a vote of no-confidence and sent to the back-bench.

    The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

      they need someone who can go before the public and present a reasonable face, and yet is totally beholden to them.  Someone who is smart enough not to actually utter birther shit for example, but who won't call anyone out who does so.

      Whereas putting a real knuckle-dragger in as Speaker could not put forth a credible case before the mainstream media and the independent public.

      Not saying this strategy will ultimately prevail but they think it gives them the best chance.

      sTiVo's rule: Just because YOU "wouldn't put it past 'em" doesn't prove that THEY did it.
