While Netanyahu Stands Up To the Cavemen Of Iran, Boehner Caves On Amnesty
I'm not sure I'm ready to take this all the way to conspiracy-theory status, but it's awfully convenient for House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu captured America's attention with his speech to Congress even as the final sordid act of the Cromnibus drama was playing out.
Boehner caved on amnesty while Netanyahu was standing up to the cavemen of Iran.
In case you've forgotten the Cromnibus horror --- it was several long news cycles ago! that was the genius strategy in which GOP leaders stripped their own caucus of the power to shape the nation's budget for a year, as they once again decided that the hill they happened to be standing on wasn't a hill worth fighting for.
A strategic retreat before the irresistible power of the Democrats the party American voters curb-stomped in the 2014 election was arranged. Republican leaders planted their tattered “Next Time, We'll Fight!” flag on a funding showdown over the one piece of the Obama Administration they didn't fund for an entire year: the Department of Homeland Security. (I imagine that flag looking a bit like the Gadsden design, except the snake is a sock puppet missing one of its button eyes, and the battle cry embroidered beneath it says “Don't Tread On Me Again, I Really Mean It This Time.”)
