The Limitless Void That Is John Boehner’s Cranium

Let’s see.  Wall Street robber barons bring the country to the brink of a depression.  An outlaw oil company fills the Gulf of Mexico with toxic sludge.  And John “I’m Stupider Than Sean Hannity” Boehner wants to — well, you can’t make this stuff up:

“I think having a moratorium on new federal regulations is a great idea it sends a wonderful signal to the private sector that they’re going to have some breathing room. . . .

“I think there’s probably a way to do this with an exemption for emergency regulations that may be needed for some particular agency or another.  But if the American people knew there was going to be a moratorium in effect for a year that the federal government wasn’t going to issue thousands more regulations, it would give them some breathing room.”

Breathing room?  What the fuck does that mean?

This is how Republicans solve problems.  They ignore them.



  1. Well, c’mon. He doesn’t mean it, of course. This is the sort of thing you can say when you’re the minority leader with no chance of it coming to pass. If he were Speaker, he would not and could not impose such a moratorium. It’s just red meat for the base.
