The Monday After The Devil Checks Out

The Angel and The Devil Who won?

The Angel and The Devil
Who won?

I’ve expended no small amount of energy disliking John Boehner nearly every time I’ve seen his face on television, that rusted countenance that appears to have been soaked in too much expensive Scotch, the flesh slackened by too much cronyism and corruption, then restretched to make it taut again by time spent on a tanning bed. The tales he told about growing up in the working class bar his father ran always curdled my innards. There always seemed a measure of self pity in the way he trotted out those childhood memories, especially because those stories he told almost always got him choked up, stories about poor little Johnny swamping out the saloon, or otherwise doing chores he had come to see as far beneath his status as Speaker of the House, a job he performed with something far short of mediocrity.

I also saw in those stories the soul of a rather sticky sentimentalist, a not-so-bright fellow who, like Reagan before him, saw the world in rather simple movieland tropes, allowing him to get weepy at the maudlin screenplay he imagined about a young boy who rose from the sawdust of a barroom floor to command the heights of power, privilege, and success, little Johnny Boehner (pronounced “Boner”), now Congressman John Boehner (pronounced “Bayner”), Speaker of the House of Representatives, a guy who drank the best booze and played golf with the rich and powerful at the nation’s most expensive and most beautifully manicured country clubs.

      The Congressional enabler of idiocy along with his idiot minions destroyed Democracy in 8 short years after it took 200 years to get it close to right.
      After that he descended back into Hell.
