Ant-Loving Democrats Trip Over Themselves Criticizing John Boehner For Financial Reform Comment

News

House Minority Tanning Bed Salesman John Boehnermentioned in an interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review yesterday that he believes the financial reform legislation before Congress "is killing an ant with a nuclear weapon." It's clear that John Boehner has not read the legislation, like a scumbag, because the legislation is targeted at the financial industry, not ants, and Democrats love ants, and also the U.S. hasn't used a nuclear weapon since 1945. But Boehner is in trouble because the entire Democratic party carefully reads every single line of every item posted on the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's website every day, and they are being very angry red ants about this.


Cute!

And then Obama hit this point hard for some Wisconsinites. "That’s right. He compared the financial crisis to an ant," Obama said. WE GOT IT THE FIRST TIME, SMARTASS.

If Boehner was trying to say this was a small problem, though, wouldn't he have called it an anthill, rather than an ant? Isn't "making mountains out of anthills" the expression? Or "molehills"? Something like that that, anyway. Ants can lift stuff that's like 3,000 times their own weight or something like that. They're very strong. Just like the financial industry in terms of Washington influence. So it's not the best metaphor.

YES, you don't need a nuclear bomb to kill an ant. But you don't need a nuclear bomb to kill lots of people either. And it's offensive to the Japanese to use nuclear bombs in metaphors if you're not Japanese.

It's the night before the two-night Democratic primary debate extravaganza, and we're already tired. Turns out having 20 candidates spread across two nights when only six or eight of them matter is not the must-see TV we all thought it was going to be! But that's not to dissuade you from getting excited! We're excited! We're so excited! We're so ...

SCARED!

In case you need a reminder, here is how it's going to go down:

Lately he's been blowing smoke from another orifice.

After a cursory examination of the TWELVE filings in the case against California Congressman Duncan Hunter just in the past 24 hours, we can confidently declare that that guy is a fucking idiot. The prosecutors have him by every last one of his short and curlies -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to pay for hundreds of thousands of dollars of ski trips, video games, tuition, and plane tickets for the family rabbit.

A rational human being would have pleaded down a year ago and given up his congressional seat, since he could cash out and make a lot more money as a lobbyist anyway. But not Duncan Hunter! He made the federal government chase him down and document every last carton of cigarettes, round of tequila, and Uber ride of shame home from his many girlfriends' houses in a 60-count indictment filed last August. And still this dumb sumbitch refused to admit he was caught, even after his lovely wife (and co-conspirator) Margaret Hunter flipped on him this month -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to carry on multiple affairs and you piss off the US Attorneys enough that they put every 7 a.m. Uber ride in your indictment.
