How in the F*** can you govern what you want to destroy? You cannot. They cannot. They even admit it:
“I thought we were off to a good start with Keystone, but now we’ve hit a wall, so I’m trying to weigh where we are going for the next 18 months or so,” Coats said. He added: “We have been at this for two months now, and we are already hung up in terms of not being able to govern.”
Coats isn’t alone.
Republicans on both sides of the Capitol were shaken at the party’s handling of the DHS funding dispute that led to a monthlong standoff, paralyzed the GOP agenda and prompted serious questions internally about whether their newfound majority can deliver anything significant over the next two years. The fear among House Republicans is that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will be too quick to heed Democratic demands and push through watered-down bills on education, trade, health care and the budget. And the worry among Senate Republicans is that their House counterparts will scuttle hard-fought compromises that offer the only way to overcome filibusters and get bills to President Barack Obama’s desk.
The new Teapublican party is not the Republican party of old. The Right Wingnuts started when Nixon got busted and the Raging Righties in their Tightie Whities had an enormous collective sad. The Federalists continued the revolution, aided by a packed Supreme Court and a mass media largely owned by wealthy Teabaggers.
The Teapubbies have what they wanted:authority. Perfect for a load of authoritarians. But they also got something else along with it: RESPONSIBILITY. Teabaggers hate that s***.
Being in charge of something doesn’t give you the power to destroy it; it requires you to run that thing you are responsible for.
Pity the poor Teapublicans, whose theoretical Ayn Rand utopia they cannot have after all. Poor deluded dimwits. They thought “governing” was a magical product of seizing power. Poor pitiful teabagging chucklef***s.
On second thought, don’t pity them. F*** ’em.
