BREAKING: Boehner to ask House for short term debt ceiling increase
Because the only way to win is to fight smart, you see — and fighting smart means kicking the can down the road until you’re all dead, then letting the poor slobs whom you’ve left behind and never truly represented swim in the calamity you helped usher in, while your family lives well off of your remaining connections. Like aristocracy, almost. Because shut up, traitors!
Look: We have no party that represents us. And no amount of freezing me out from the alternative media or dismissing those of us with our eyes wide open is going to change that. No amount of pretend pragmatism, or talk of 3-D chess and endgames, is going to disguise the fact that the political class and its industry of attendants is content to nurture the status quo — then live off the OUTRAGE the status quo engenders in the base.
I sincerely hope that the House TEA Party caucus refuses to blink and tells Speaker Orangetears to get stuffed; let Boehner, the Quislings, and the Dems caucus together. It’ll be clarifying.
