The Only Thing More Breathtaking than Newt’s Statements Concerning Ryan’s Budget Was The House GOP’s Response

I mean…talk about an immediate and unrelenting slap down.

Which is awesome. Newt was being Newt and doing what Newt does best…flap his gums incessantly while patting himself on the back for how brilliant he himself is until both feet are lodged up to the ankles in his gaping maw!

What’s so brilliant and awe inspiring about this however…isn’t the enormity of said gaping maw…or the incredible contortions one must make with ones body to get one’s feet firmly lodged into one’s mouth…nay…that is impressive…but not nearly as awe inspiring as the fact that he continues to rattle on with both feet thus buried.

But Newt being Newt isn’t what prompted me to write this….what has truly made my day is the full throated and glorious response that has come from the Congressional Delegation of the GOP.

I can’t think of a more marvelous slap down than we’ve experienced in the House GOP’s response to Newt’s idiocy….which has me puzzled.

Yes..Puzzled.

I mean…who knew they could be so effective pounding anyone into spitting and sputtering and backtracking as the House GOP has done to Newt.

I don’t condemn it…..I give it my full throated hosanna, Amen and Hallelujah!

It’s about time they woke up and unloaded on the lunacy that has infected DC.

Yet the puzzlement remains.

And my question. is this.

Why now? Why do they’; to a man, wake up form their lethargic slumber to slap down Newt so decisively…so exquisitely artful that the act was an angelic sight to behold….

It was done in a way that displays brilliance, passion and unmatched glory when they haven’t been able to muster so much as a “hey wait a minute” when dealing with Senate and White House Dems.

Quite the contrast isn’t it?

Would that they were half as forceful and effective against Barry and Harry.

But of course…Newt’s a Republican isn’t he….there’s no harm in slamming a Republican when he’s being an idiot….but Pinch and his minions at the Grey Lady wouldn’t be happy if they went after Barry and Harry with such force, vigor and reckless abandon.

No…if Newt were a Dem….we’d have heard every word of response begun with a “my friend from pick your state”…..and ended with a couple “I look forward to working across the Isle from pick your state”.

But Newt….no we’ll gun him down in the street without a second’s hesitation…and we’ll fill him so full of holes in the process that there is nothing but hamburger where a chest once was.

Again…They are right to go after Newt…and they couldn’t have been more brilliant in the take down…it’s just a sad and sorry shame that they can’t do likewise against those who would destroy this country from within.

Oh well…back to sleep now…let’s not force anyone to confront the demons facing us every day…back to sleep lest we make the so called “Objective Press” and the news wires unhappy.

  1. Ace, interesting point. Actually, I’m hoping that some of the Repubs are beginning to grow a spine, and that said spine will eventually be revealed in the same glorious manner you mentioned, full-throttled, straight in the face of the Dems.

    Unlikely? In times past, yeah. Totally impossible? I don’t think so. I think the political environment they are facing right now is going to drive them more in this direction, because there are so many of us in the general public who want to see that kind of tenacity, courage and conviction in our leaders.

    • You are probably right, LH, that ‘the political environment we are in’ has driven them in this direction – but you have to ask “Why do they have to be driven?” They should represent the will of the people, yes. But they should be their own men, and women. Yes, it is a shame that Michelle Bachman had to bring in Antonin Scalia to teach members of Congress the Constitution, but maybe, hopefully, if they didn’t have a grip on it before, they are now inspired.

      • I could be displaying a certain amount of naivete by giving them even this much of the benefit of doubt, bob, but I think that over time they just became accustomed to the status quo in politics where all the machinations, scheming and conniving come first ahead of other things. Plus, we the people weren’t nearly as vocal as we could have been or should have been about letting them know that we were watching and it does matter.
