As I type this, the House has passed yet another fund-the-government-a-few-more-days resolution, so now it’s up to the Senate. And when I look at the face below, I see a man of action. I see a man of strength. I see a man who will not compromise. Actually, none of that is true. What I see is a chinless, feckless dweeb who would utterly fail anywhere except the poisonous swamp of Washington D.C. But I suspect he and his insipid colleagues will vomit up enough votes to get the vital, vital services of our federal government running a little while longer. And thank GOD for that, right?
