"This is not a time for compromise, and I can tell you that we will not compromise."
-- John Boehner
"Look, the time to go along and get along is over."
-- Mike Pence
The hilarious thing about these statements is that they imply that up until now the Republicans in Congress have been the picture of bipartisan cooperation, rather than the deranged pack of obstinate howler monkeys they've actually acted like.
The depressing thing, of course, is that these statements all but guarantee that once these children take the House, the government will grind to a crushing halt.
As Taibbi said so beautifully recently -- man, they really broke the mold when they created these assholes.
