Boehner: the master of his safe house
WHY IS John Boehner smiling and not sobbing in this photo? Why is he pointing - and to whom? Is he telling the Tea Party that he could do it? Is he telling the Democrats that he is now the happy landlord of their foreclosed House? The moment is his after every Republican in his custody voted to repeal the health care - eh, job-killing health care - reform law on Wednesday. All of them. Not a single dissent. 242 plus 3 conservative Democrats, which made it non-partisan. No surprise here. Pleasing the Tea Partyers and hounding Democratic initiatives is a pre-existing condition for the current brand of Republicanistas. By now we should understand that there is no cure for it,which makes any further remedies useless.
