"My job as Speaker"

You know what happens when you assume...

Oh STFU you tool, you don't do shiat, none of you do.

My Boeher couldn't have possibly gotten any harder than I was browsing youporn in my office earlier. And I still do more work than you.

turning to Democrats more often to pass critical budget, transportation or immigration bills next year is a path toward potential mutiny by conservatives

Isn't mutiny by the conservatives the reason Boner has to turn to Dems for critical votes in the first place?

He should just take the sane members of the GOP and completely switch to voting with the Democrats all the time.

If only there were some way that boner could form a coalition government with rational centrists.
You know, ignore the fools in the tea party.
If only there were another party, with MORE than enough votes to keep him in power and not have to deal with the mentally deranged.

You dont think that the DEMS would deal, for a couple of chairmanships and majorities in the major committees? 
Pelosi would take chair of ways and means. over what she got now.
And you could completely ignore the teahadists.

LOL

I wouldn't trust the GOP to hold up their end of any sort of power-sharing agreement.

Because it fits for this thread too, I'll repeat myself:

I think the GOP has misunderstood the quote "If elected, I will not serve." It didn't mean "I will go to Washington, but instead of doing my job I'll just mess up the place."

Well, listen here, nmrsnr. Computers may be twice as fast as they were in 1973 but your average voter is as drunk and stupid as ever. The only one who's changed is Boehner. He's become sadder and, let's face it, oranger over the years. And if he's kept in office, he'll sell our children's organs to zoos for meat and he'll go into The People's House at night and wreck up the place.

I believe you can have a leadership vote at any time.  So Dems could vote to put him in power, and if GOP didn't keep their promises, the Dems could simply call for a new leadership vote and this time, let the Tea Party kick him out of caucus.  Seems like not too much of a risk.

At this point it would be a six of one, half dozen of the other situation.

Now I have this mental image/tape of Putin saying "ARROOOOOOOOOO!" (does that translate to Cyrillic?) and that makes it tough to edit this thing I'm working on.

// though the thought of his head in a jar, and him being reduced to using those little robot arms, is also comical
// Headless Body of Medvedev, what do you think?

"The country is going wrong in so many different ways. We need people like Glenn to get us back between the bumpers of the bowling alley, and stay out of the gutters."

That doesn't even mean anything.

Either Boehner and the Dems come to some kind of power sharing agreement to get sane moderate necessary legislation done without the support of a single teatard or the country continues to stumble and lurch towards another fiscal nightmare like the last shut down.

Hoping for the former.

Bracing for the latter.

I do my best to match my commentary to the capabilities of the Fark mental giants that come up with Boner/drunk/orange jokes whenever the Speaker is mentioned. It's surprisingly difficult to be that vapid, but I give it a try.

ManateeGag: he thinks he's going to be Speaker in the next congress? he's adorable.


So, how will that play out?  Will the entire GOP vote for whomever the Tea Party wants as Speaker?  Or will the Tea Party and the rest of the GOP compromise on someone who isn't Boehner?  If the Tea Party simply votes for their preferred candidate and the rest of the GOP for theirs, a Democrat could get the most votes for Speaker.

Remember, nowhere in the Constitution does it say that the Speaker of the House must belong to the majority party.  In fact, political parties are not mentioned in the Constitution.  The Speaker is elected by the House, period.
