Babes in Government-land…

I’ve had enough. I’m tired of dealing with babies.

This whole Debt Ceiling “crisis” has made it clear to me that, with the Tea Party Caucus in the House of Representatives, we are dealing with political babies.

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!

I will never understand why so many working class Midwestern Americans voted for these Tea Party-GOP babies in 2010 – but they did.

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.

Government is way to complex for infant children.

    Dad–with respect to the title, don’t you mean “babies” in Government-land?And with respect to the blog, I have three things to say:
    1) Amen! I realized yesterday that it’s impossible for me to watch CSPAN anymore without popping a blood vessel in my brain from restrained shouting. I have no respect for these people.
    2) Love the pictures you chose.
    3) On a separate but unrelated note, I saw a headline today in AM New York that said, “Boehner Gets Tough in White House”. Just thought that was hilarious.

    • The title of my article is a twist on the tile of an operetta called “Babes in Toyland” that’s been made into several movies, including a Disney version in 1961 that I probably saw.

      “Boehner Gets Tough in What House”? Makes you wanna laugh ’til you cry.

    Ah, the old “I will crap my pants and magically they will get clean” days. I miss that sacrament to this day. But ya know, however cute these little babies who scream “gimme”, looking so cute in their sharp three corner hats, with their baby talk spewing of factual errors of what our forefathers meant and wrote, well to be honest, they all make me sleep like a baby. . . I wake up every two hours and cry.

    • And sometimes when I hear some of the outrageous lies and idiocy the GOP-Tea Baggers pew — it makes me spit up my food. (Just like a baby.)
