John Boehner takes the stage
Rallying his minions to do such important business as repealing the health care bill because who with a preexisting condition doesn't want their insurance eliminated?
And what elderly soul doesn't want to play Texas holdem with their Social Security when the Boner diverts their monthly check to Wall Steet.
But the Kabuki will continue with impeachment hearings that will amount to nothing more than show. They'll definitely need to reduce the deficit by lowering taxes yet again and thereby add to the deficit.
Not to forget food safety, the environment, education and worker safety because after all it's so easy to underfund those programs as they've been for the last ten years.
And who wouldn't want to make a career out of saying no and undoing (or at least trying) what the opposition just passed into law. After all it's what you do when the assignment came due and you were too busy playing the back 9 in Ohio and getting drunk to come up with a real plan. It's much easier than saying the dog ate my homework. The real question becomes can they keep this performance up for two whole years and keep the masses amused and confused?
