Everyone Hates Ted Cruz, Part Two

Including his fellow Republican Senators.

And in other related news, this guy Cong. Todd Rokita (R-IN), is a total douchebag.

And this guy, Cong. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN). What is it with Indiana and douchebags?

“We’re not going to be disrespected,” he told the Washington Examiner’s David Drucker. “We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.”

It Sucks To Be Boehner


John Boehner has, for all intents and purposes, been deposed by Ted Cruz as Speaker of the House in a (so far) bloodless coup. The Lunatic Fringe caucus of his party takes its orders from Cruz, leaving him powerless to extricate himself from the shutdown debacle Cruz got him into in the first place, even though he clearly has the votes to end this. How crazy is the Lunatic Fringe Caucus, you may ask? Crazy enough that even Grover “Drown the government in the bathtub” Norquist thinks they’re crazy. Uncharacteristically, Obama and the Democrats are standing firm and Republicans are taking huge hits in the polls. You have to work pretty hard at it to get a 10% approval rating. What’s the solution? If this trainwreck continues for a month, Democrats and a few sane Republicans can force a vote through a discharge petition, which will also likely be the final nail in the coffin of the Boehner speakership. It could also provide momentum for Democrats to retake the House, though they still have a high hurdle to overcome thanks to gerrymandering. Unless something changes dramatically, this seems like the most likely scenario to me.


Wow, Who Could’ve Possibly Foreseen?

Evidently, behaving like a bunch of self-absorbed assholes is not all that popular.  To say nothing of being utter hypocrites.

Scenes From the Revolution

Sire, the peasants are revolting!

You said it.  They stink on ice!

Astonishingly, the general public seems not be buying the GOP line that we must slash non-defense discretionary spending and ONLY non-defense discretionary spending (i.e., government programs that help people besides millionaires).  Stay tuned.
