|Tea Party Caucus Meeting|
Speaker of the House, John "Are-you-kidding-me?" Boehner, is fast becoming a hero of mine. No longer beholden to the tea-party minority of his majority (which in no way represents the will of the People), he passed the authorization with very few Republican votes relying on the Democrats instead. Some said he was whistling "Zip-ah-dee-do-dah" today. Roll Call reports that after a brief conference last night in front of befuddled Republicans, he walked back to the podium and said, "You're not even going to clap for me getting this monkey off of our backs?"
Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.
Oh, and by the way, Senior Republican Senators will not let Ted Cruz hold it up over there even if he is joined by other junior senators like our very own little guy from Utah, mike lee!
Way to go, Speaker Boehner! And good luck with that Speakership!
