It occurs to me, amid the not-overwhelming but still substantial representation of “outrage” over the recent pantsing of the electorate by the Senate’s Republican caucus, to wonder, “WTF did anyone seriously expect?”

The action of the House was not expected or intended to – in the words of ‘Enry ‘Iggins – “Throw the baggage out!”

It was intended to record forever in the Congressional Record, “You suck.” To which of course the only reply is exactly what was rendered: the bird.
