Oh, Goody... GOP Violent Metaphors Are Back! Get Yours Today!

For any trolls who may visit this site without adequate human intelligence to determine, that's snark. In any case...

John Boehner, lame Speaker of the lame House of Representatives, put this spin on the GOP's union-hating:

In some of these states you've got collective bargaining laws that are so weighted in favor of the public employees that there's almost no bargaining. We've given them a machine gun and put it right at the heads of the local officials and they really have their hands tied.

So, Boner-boy, which Democratic Representative are you going to send one of your crazies to shoot through the head this time? Apparently, one critically injured political opponent wasn't enough to convince you that the violent rhetoric must end. I therefore hold you personally responsible for any further violent acts against Democratic politicans... or, for that matter, union leaders... which happen on your watch.


  1. Jesus. Talk about boneheaded metaphors, Boehner. Just imagine if a crazy goes over the edge and decides ANY elected official will do... I can just hear the cries of outrage if a Republican is the next one 'targeted'....

  2. Give them a machine gun and tie their hands? That is a screwed up metaphor!

  3. Maybe golfer Boehner will understand the actuality of a 'hole-in-one' when it comes close to home.

  4. ellroon, jams, mandt...

    ellroon, ours is a society obsessed with guns, and those people particularly obsessed are liable to be the ones with the greatest degree of political paranoia. Who knows what they will do!

    jams, I think he meant the employees' unions have been given the guns and the local officials' hands were tied. But either way, it's utter crap. Public employees do have a slightly higher income average than in private industry, but they also have commensurately higher average qualifications (education, training, experience) than private employees. The whole thing is made up as an excuse to bust unions. I think the GOP may find it doesn't have the support it believes it has after the 2010 elections.

    mandt... ROFL!
