In the crashing, burning finale to the House Radicals’ ploy to trash the compromise on the payroll tax cut and burn the country, all for the sake of ideologically-based hatred of Obama and all things government, the stand-out loser is John Boehner. Days ago his crazy Tea Party caucus was praising him to the skies, calling him “Braveheart”, in going against common sense and his own party!
Soon the poll numbers started to come in. Today he ends up very much like the actual Braveheart. Soon to be Artichoke-heart. As it were.
PS: Sometimes laws of gravity do apply in politics. All those who have been despairing of it ever happening can now yell, “Freedom!”
