Conservative crack up

Not often I would link to anything someone from Powerslime said, or to the New York Post, but this little lament is too amusing to pass up. Shorter JPod: You crackpots cons are making all of us look stupid.

A couple of my favorite bits:
And so many of them are literally embracing chaos. Though they oppose raising taxes, by voting against the tax bill on Tuesday night they effectively voted to raise taxes on 98 percent of Americans. [...]

This is how people who are more comfortable on the margins than in the middle of things behave. This is cannibalism, not political combat. This is unreason, not reason. This is temper, not temperament.

This is anarchism, not conservatism.
Which reminded me of Rep. Steven LaTourette's parting shot just before he slunk back to Ohio to ponder his future outside of Capitol Hill:
Speaking to reporters shortly after the vote, the Ohio Republican reportedly said the defeat of the Boehner bill lay squarely on the shoulders of "the same 40, 50 chuckleheads that all year … have screwed this place up."
I might have felt a bit of sympathy for these "very serious cons" if they weren't the ones who invited the "chuckleheads" to the party in the first place. Surely they knew this crowd would get drunk and trash the place. Everybody else did.
