Conservative Congressmen Act Out

So that they can say they voted against it before they voted for it, the new crop of neo-conservative House members went all in today on a pair of deuces, John Boehner and Roy Blount. Gambling on the prospect that they will be treated as liberators by their anti-government constituents who have never been made privy to the neocon script on how our government is to bled until it can be dragged into the bathtub and drowned, these fresh Janus-faced Republicans hope somehow that the American public will blame Nancy Pelosi for their recalcitrance.

Whether or not that tactic works, don't be surprised to see the Maverick on the Capitol steps in a couple of days backed up by all those no-voting Representatives who have been led out of the darkness by their new leader, a leader who will graciously offer the votes that are needed to pass the Wall Street welfare plan, thus saving the world from economic meltdown while crippling the ability of any future Administration from accomplishing anything of public substance.
