Now that John Boehner has narrowly kept his Speakership, will he and his minions retaliate against those who were representing the people of their districts and voted against him?
Because that’s what he would be doing…
He would be retaliating against Us.
If this happens, does he think We will suddenly fall in behind him?
I would suggest that unlikely.
His best course of action may be to take this as a wake-up call and fly right. It’s well past time for more Constitutional Loyalty and less Bipartisanshitt.
But experience has shown us The Establishment Republicans will do the exact opposite of swinging back towards the Constitution…
We will see.
Update: No need to wait long. Boehner has now made it clear that he has no intention of listening to us.

The latest conversation around the gravy boat is Chris Christie’s Deputy Chief of Staff orchestrated a traffic jam tailor made for the Mayor of Fort Lee New Jersey.
While I enjoy watching East Coast types slap each other around… and this one is genuinely funny… that’s not what interests me most. What I find to be the real story here is Gov. Christies response to the story.
“What I’ve seen today for the first time is unacceptable,” the statement issued late Wednesday read. “I am outraged and deeply saddened to learn that not only was I misled by a member of my staff, but this completely inappropriate and unsanctioned conduct was made without my knowledge. One thing is clear: this type of behavior is unacceptable and I will not tolerate it because the people of New Jersey deserve better. This behavior is not representative of me or my Administration in any way, and people will be held responsible for their actions.”
Chris Christie has just delivered the Barack Obama defense. The only thing missing here is “I learned of this watching CNN.”
But it gets better… the loyal opposition are running out now that there is hard evidence of a direct tie, read e-mail, to the Governors office and demanding someone be fired.
The Aide quit Dec. 13th. Today is January 8th.
Full disclosure requires my stating that I’m not a Christie fan. But even to my eyes the fear with which the Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ of the world exhibit when considering Christie defeating Hillary is enjoyable.
In the end, I don’t think Christie should fire anyone. If anything the Governor should reach out to the unemployed Aide and give him a better job than the one he had.
It seems only reasonable…
that is if you’re wearing your “What Would Obama Do?” bracelet.
