does everyone have a buddy?

reading this post put me in mind of nothing so much as a high school field trip, where someone acted like an ass and the teacher had to give everyone a stern talking-to about appropriate public behavior:

House Minority Leader John Boehner told his conference to “behave like grown-ups” if the healthcare bill is passed by the House on Sunday.

The Ohio Republican made the warning at a quick closed-door meeting with fellow House GOP lawmakers at noon in the Capitol.

when you think about it, this one quote perfectly sums up everything that’s wrong with our political system: the house minority leader has to tell his fellows to behave like the adult professionals they’re supposed to be instead of like petulant teenagers.

    So yeah, Boehner’s being fucking ricockulous. MMFA could’ve also mentioned the bit ^^^^^ where the House GOP cheered on a guy who was essentially resisting arrest. Black Reps have been spit on and called niggers and Barney Frank was called a faggot.. these are the Code Red Teabagger protestors, but the House GOP hasn’t spoken out against it when political etiquette and their past history dictates they must. (Remember the MoveOn Petraeus/Betray Us ad dustup awhile back?)
