Now that they got rid of that leftist John Boehner, the conservatives in Congress can really get down to business. If you thought we had gridlock and animosity before, you’re in for some real do-nothingness if the right wing members of the House get their way.
Speaker Boehner was ousted because the harder-right Republican members of the House thought he compromised with the Democrats too much. (If only Ronald Reagan were still alive, he’d get run out on a rail and called a socialist.) The balance of the GOP in Congress is shifting further rightward, providing more opportunities for jobs, if you’re in the business of political satire.
The Party of No wants to become the Party of Even More No because that will, you know, turn the country into a republic that works, or something. It’s sure to be an interesting couple of weeks as Speaker Rock begins to emerge. After all, if John Boehner isn’t safe, whoever takes the top spot damn well better do what the righter-than-right wants. Enjoy the cartoon, and be sure to dive into the additional links.
