Republicans Meet About Obama Impeachment
Be advised. The United States House of Representatives — one-half of the national legislature, which is one third-of the national government, if you’re keeping score in civics class — exists now solely to gin up enthusiasm in, and to raise money from, the increasingly demented political base of the Republican party. It is a campaign mechanism, not a governing institution. If it were a governing institution, it would have actual leaders who would tell the more demented members of firm to knock this pointless shit off and get on with the business of proposing policy alternatives as part of the business of running the country.
There is no leadership in the House. John Boehner’s off somewhere in a pith helmet, carrying a flashlight and a map, and looking for the spot where they buried the mason jar containing his balls back in 2010. The leadership of the House exists outside the House. It can be found in television studios, and on the radio, and in quiet boardrooms where very wealthy people cut checks to finance exotic and dangerous political maneuvering on the part of dim and addled backbench congresscritters. This keeps the government entangled in nonsense and off the backs of the very wealthy people who consider themselves the country’s true owners.
