Ah, How Would You Like To Be a Republican in Power Right Now?

I almost feel sorry for the R.’s right now. Between Boehner and McConnell, it’s hard to know who’s more pitiable. Personally, I feel more for the Speaker; McConnell disgusts me, but Boehner seems like someone you could have a drink with. I wouldn’t drink with Mitch McConnell for anything short of serious, serious money. still, they’re both in the tank for their common constituencies, the nation and the world have seen them do it, and now they stand naked before us all.

Ugly fuckin’ sight, eh? I agree.

Boehner’s job is ridiculous. Between the TP-‘er’s and his own fellow country-clubbers, he has nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. No wonder he cries. And as for McConnell, oh God, the dealmaker’s wardrobe….

You’re tired of them. So am I. Still, they hang around. No fun. But I still wouldn’t want to be them for all the joys of planet Earth. For all that, though, they’re going to hang on as long as they can because that’s what a virus does. It hangs on; that’s its life.

I despise them both, as I do their minions. They’re part of the reason I prefer Toronto.
