It is one of the Wonders of the Modern World...

that a pathetically weak and indecisive specimen such as John Boehner can somehow perpetuate himself as Speaker of the House given all the sheer needless mishaugas he routinely sires. Last week the poor dumb bastard hit rock goddamn bottom, compelled to go hat in hand to Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in order to pass very temporary funding for the Department of Homeland Security. It would hardly look good for the US House to permit DHS to go unfunded when Israeli PM Netanyahu was about to harangue all and sundry about diresome International Security Threats. So I guess we can thank Bibi for the seven days of funding at least... The Wall Street Journal spells it out in plain english today, by going to Pelosi, Boehner effectively makes the Minority Leader Co-Speaker of the House...and at this point it is well worth remembering that Boehner may well retains his job simply because his most active opposition is too willful and stupid to gin up an alternate and depose The Speaker's Fat Ass. Sheer Obama-hatred, proclaimed by soiled vengeful jobbers elected from classically rotten boroughs, persons who have climbed out too far on the limb to GOVERN effectively are pretty much what has laid the US House Low. And you know what? I'm fine with it. In the absence of an "accountability moment" at the ballot box this is probably the best we can hope for. My only worry at this point is that John Boehner stupidity, ineptitude, cowardice and all is still only two heartbeats away from the Presidency. It is enough to advise that Congress swiftly revisit the terms of the Presidential Succession Act of 1947...or I would if I wasn't sure they'd make a disaster of that as well.
