After much back and forth, up and down, tossing and turning about what we could do to stir things up, we here at H&F are PLEASED to announce a NEW feature.
On Sundays, I am going to be picking an individual out of the past week’s offerings of liberal stupidity, who through his or her words or actions, or a combination of both, personifies what this title REALLY is all about.
So, without further ado, we are proud to announce our inaugural….
WEASEL OF THE WEEK.
Our first-ever weasel has a real penchant for caving, cowering, and general spinelessness. He also made ANOTHER first in the annals of our humble enterprise 3 short weeks ago.
This week, I have made the choice an easy one, and because this Weasel has spoken out of BOTH sides of his pie chute in the space of a few days.
Earlier in the week, after the State Of The Union Show, our Weasel took a HUGE, unprecedented step in inviting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel to speak before the House. The White Mosque, in a fit of pique worthy of the five-year-olds they are, had a cow. To see our Weasel slap the president this way made us think he had finally turned the corner.
John Boehner Attacks Tea Party: Leaders Oppose Me to Get Rich
From The Hill:
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is blaming conservative groups in Washington for turning him into a human pinata to raise money.
In an interview to air on Sunday’s “60 Minutes” on CBS, Boehner said he doesn’t disagree that much with conservatives on policy, but that the groups beat “the dickens out of me” in order to line their own pockets.
“The issue with the Tea Party isn’t one of strategy. It’s not one of different vision,” Boehner said, according to excerpts released by CBS.
“It’s a disagreement over tactics, from time to time. Frankly, a lot is being driven by national groups here in Washington who have raised money and just beating the dickens out of me,” Boehner said in the joint interview with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
“It works. They raise money, put it in their pocket, and pay themselves big salaries,” Boehner added.
HOW do these Weasels do it ? One day, they’re sounding like they SHOULD sound, the next, totally wimped out. I don’t get it. Getting RICH over TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT HIM ??? WTF, over ???
BUT, Speaker Boehner does “get it”. He gets THIS for his contributions to our humble little blog:
There it is, dear readers, our inaugural Weasel Of The Week. Hope you have enjoyed it. If YOU have a worthy nominee for our W O T W, leave your nominee here in the comments section.
