Bye-Bye, ‘Boner,’ Bye-Bye

September 25, 2015

john_boehner.12.04.06_lrgSunshine, a few fluffy clouds and warm air here near-noon Friday, and the outlook for the weekend onward looks good, though, the rain forecast for next Wednesday has already evaporated, or whatever.

Tears trembling down like rain in the news this morning, however, as John ‘The Boner‘ Boehner calls it quits: ‘“Last night I started thinking about this and this morning I woke up and I said my prayers — as I always do — and I decided today’s the day I’m going to do this. As simple as that.”

Emotion lotion to the move: ‘“The Pope puts his arm around me and kind of pulls me to him and says please pray for me. Who am I to pray for the Pope? But I did,” Boehner said, struggling to hold back tears.’

Pitiful and pleasingly pious, this political pontificating pronounced way-ponderous. The nowadays is situated in a strange and nefarious narrative, with words floating in white-milk of deceit.
And pundits will posture with pronouncements, but are wrong as fuck.
Choked-up and clueless…

Alliteration aside, The Boner is an asshole.
Good riddance, maybe…
From New York magazine this afternoon:

You could consider his exit from Congress just desserts.
This is, after all, the guy who was knocked from his leadership role early in his career for taking part in a failed coup attempt against Newt Gingrich.
This is the man who was in charge of the House GOP when it chose to shut down the government, and when it threatened to so many times before and after.
He’s the man who had lawyers go to court for the Defense of Marriage Act when the administration was no longer willing to defend it, and who presided over so much craziness in the House.
Certainly, the tea party is happy to see him go.
At a Marco Rubio speech delivered at the Values Voters Summit Friday morning, the audience broke into cheers and applause when Boehner’s retirement was announced.

Only shit might just get worse — if that’s possible. The Donald approved: ‘He was unsurprisingly delighted with the news. “I think it’s wonderful, frankly,” he said. He agreed that Boehner was not conservative enough.’

And a typical office situation, via HuffPost in January of this year:

Thrush also details Boehner’s strategy for coping with phone conversations with President Obama: “Two former House leadership staffers who spent a lot of time around the speaker say it is not uncommon for Boehner to roll his eyes during one of Obama’s long spiels, set down the receiver on his desk with Obama’s muffled voice still droning over the line — as the speaker lights another Camel or gestures to an aide to hand him a file.”

America is facing some bad crazy, mainly due to the ugly fact the Republican party is nuts, not truly able to govern and a major national problem — we might need to do more than cry our way out of it…
