Watching John Boehner rather sadly go through the routines of being in charge is not that much fun. He seems to know he's in a dead end job. He seems to know no one respects him. And he seems to know what he's doing doesn't matter much.
I guess what I'm saying is that he's Dante, from Clerks. Going nowhere. Doing nothing, and getting no respect.
But for this to work he'd need a Randall always around him. And the best shot at that would be someone like Eric Cantor. But that'd mean Cantor was constantly cutting Boehner down in conversations. That he was constantly slacking off and preventing anything from getting done...
...Oh my god! Eric Cantor is Randall!
Does the 113th session of congress make a lot more sense now?
The House is being run by the clerks.
So are all the wacky, ridiculous, and cartoonish plots of the last year based on the animated series then?
Does that mean bear really is driving car?!
Eh. Can't wait until Boehner and Cantor are stuck working at Mooby's then.

"What? All the milkshakes you can drink isn't cushy?"
