Quote of the
Day Next Two Years
"The only way to do all these things is to put someone in the White House who won't veto any of these things."
-- Senate Minority Leader and white sleestak Mitch McConnell, basically telling President Obama where he can stick his bipartisan cooperation and spelling out in no uncertain terms what the goal of every single thing congressional Republicans do over the next 24 months will be
As Cesca basically said in his latest piece over at HuffPo, get ready for the Age of Issa -- for government to grind to a halt while the House GOP launches ridiculous investigation after absurd official inquiry, all aimed at forcing Barack Obama out of office one way or another.
I've never been one of those people who feels that he's in a position to lecture the President of the United States -- particularly this very smart president -- on what he should or shouldn't do. But I do think we've finally reached a point where someone needs to take Obama aside and remind him that he and his party still have two of the three centers of power in our government.
What that means is that, for God's sake, enough is enough. Fuck McConnell -- and that orange prick Boehner. Grow a pair of giant brass balls, take a stand, take back the narrative, and slam dunk their asses.
This is a street fight. It's time to start acting like it.
