Groveling obsequious pusillanimity

Wait, is that what GOP means? I thought I had read somewhere that it stood for "Grand Old Party". Well, I guess someone must have been pulling my leg. Although it makes sense, now. Any Republican congressman who believes that going along with Obama on his Syrian adventure means that the president will be more tractable during the upcoming budget negotiations should be indicted on a charge of terminal stupidity, removed from office, and denied food, water and shelter within a hundred-mile radius of Washington, DC. If bombing Syria turns out to be ineffectual, but a non-disaster, Obama and the press his public relations machine will find a way to spin it as a "moral" victory, Obama will take full credit, and he'll be barking at Republicans this fall like a junkyard dog who's just spied a meth-head trying to steal some scrap copper.

My beautiful victory.

I fear you're right, Paco. As for the Republicans, I think they, and the Democrats as well, ought to be ridden out of D.C. on a rail with a full coating of tar and feathers.

Oi. That's a massive face palm moment.
