Waxman-Markey debate

In this weeks version of fun in politics, Rep. Jim Boehner R-OH, the House Minority Leader, took the stand today and started reading the 300-page amendment that was tacked onto Waxman-Markey at the last minute. Literally. Reading the thing.

Searching for an apt metaphor to what the Democrats have been doing procedurally since sweeping the trifecta... here it is: They're like a serial rapist who gets off on a technicality, then the first thing he does is go to a schoolyard with class in session, pull down his pants, and start shaking hands vigorously with Mr. Marbles. It's going to end badly for them. I just don't get it.
