As a parent of three grown children, I know what a pain it is to deal with babies.
First of all, babies don’t know anything. All they know is what they want. And when they don’t get what they want, they cry.
Wahhhhh! Wahhhhh! Wahhhhh!
And now, political adults – both Democrats and Republicans – find they must contend with all these whiny, itty-bitty, small minded ultra-conservative babies in the U.S. House of Representatives who have no clue what it is to govern the greatest democracy in the western world.
As though they were simply playing with blocks in the safety of their padded playpens, these know-nothing GOP babies have no clear idea of the impact that their actions will have outside of their playpen.
I hope that the Government Adults – President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Minority Leader Mitch McChinless, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and Speaker “Boo-Hoo” Boehner – are finally able to quiet the Tea Party babies and put them down for a long nap, just in time to raise the Debt Ceiling and move on with the grown-up business of government.
Ssssshhhh. Don’t wake the Tea Party-GOP babies.
