Governing Is Hard
John Boehner is just awful…
Especially at his job.
Republicans seem to be running up against a stubborn truth that those of us on the left have known for years; governing is hard. You can promise your rabid, bugfuck crazy base anything their twisted little hearts desire, but delivering on those promises once in power can prove problematic at best. Faith-based ideology has always been prone to getting run over by the reality freight train. so it’s not really surprising to see their party fracture a bit as they stumble all over each other trying to avoid dealing with any real problems lest they end up bloodied on the side of the tracks again. Equally unsurprising is the complete Fail that is the Speaker of the House. Poor John just can’t seem to get his shit in one sock long enough to even bring supposedly slam-dunk bills up for a vote. Maybe they should start serving cocktails along with envelopes of lobbyist cash on the House Floor so that he can feel a bit more in his element.

The guy really is a fucking joke. He’s only good at two things, hustling corporate cash from every sleaze-bag lobbyist that gets within one hundred feet of him, and being a smarmy, self-righteous douchebag. I can’t imagine working for a goddamn clown like him.
