BREAKING NEWS: Obama Dislocates Shoulder Reaching Out To McConnell

Oh, never mind. 

I was going to write a satirical news article (a take-off on Obama’s recent basketball injury) on how the president will react to this:

Senate Republicans intend to block action on virtually all Democratic-backed legislation unrelated to tax cuts and government spending in the current session of Congress, officials said Tuesday, adding that the leadership has quietly collected signatures on a letter pledging to carry out the strategy.

White House spokesmen will doubtless respond to McConnell’s latest bitch-slap with something worthless and weak.  I can’t top those guys when it comes to ladling out bipartisan pablum suitable for David Broder to gum down.

Anyway, none of this would have even happened if only at their last meeting Barack had been courteous enough to bring Mitch his pipe and slippers without being asked!
