Federal Gridlock to Stanch Leftist Metastasis

“A flock of liberal pundits is now trying to convince its members — and us — that losing the House and maybe the Senate is a really good thing for Obama. It’s not because he might moderate his views. Oh no, for in their book, Obama wasn’t radical enough. They suggest he’ll look better because he’ll have an “enemy” — John Boehner. […] Bill Clinton ran circles around the GOP Congress following the 1994 midterm debacle because he was more amiable, flexible, and adroit than his opponents. Whatever his faults, Clinton didn’t hate our guts. He loved being president, and he loved being praised by his fellow citizens. Obama suffers us — first in silence, and now in public. And flexibility has really not been his strong suit.”

The most likely outcome of Tuesday's national elections will be a 50/50 Senate and a Republican-majority House, with John Boehner replacing the detestable Nancy Pelosi as Speaker. As far as I can tell, it's win/win.

"Why, TheBigHenry," you ask? Well, let's examine the typical scenario that would ensue.

Joe "BFD" Biden, the President of the Senate, will be in position to exercise his tie-breaking vote frequently to do The Obama's bidding (Bidening?) in stopping John Boehner's Republican agenda. And if all else fails, The Obama Himself will have a veto-override-proof Senate as a stopgap.

In the other chamber, the Republican-majority House will be in position to bury whatever new atrocity The Obama and his leftist minions try to Rahm through Congress. "Feck 'em if they can't take a joke," my mom used to say.

Surcease! The American people have earned it "in spades". (No racism is intended, but I am sure the Left will so proclaim it).

  1. Uh, I think you're thinking of my mom, F.S.M....

  2. Heard on Cavuto the other day, from John Sununu: "Some people call it 'gridlock'. I call it 'checks and balances'."

    I hadn't thought of it that way before, but he's right.

  3. "Some people call it 'gridlock'. I call it 'checks and balances'."

    Perhaps we should call it 'surcease'?
