Wouldn't it be nice if John Boehner, the House speaker, could actually do some leading?
This is in the news digest I get every morning from The New York Times:
Lawmakers were fully united, if only around their sadness and frustration at being stuck in Washington in a holiday week, peering over the edge of the fiscal abyss.
To which my response is, "Too bad. Too fkng bad. Stop whining and get to work."
