Frick.... There's a cussword in the url and I guess this site is censoring it which is making the link not work.

I will post the link and hopefully you can copy and paste and type in the cuss word properly LOL.

Outrage is warranted. But outrage unaccompanied by analysis is a danger in itself.

Long ago, before he was a GOP bigwig, Boehner co-authored a report titled "The College Cost Crisis," which was full of misinterpreted and often made up facts.

As Stanley Fish said in his review of my first book ...

quote:

What Boehner and McKeon offer is the “dysfunctionality narrative,” and every once in a while Archibald and Feldman put up a quotation from their report to use as a piñata.


Piñata indeed! Big Grin

On the Senate side, some very serious people were working on the issues ... Tom Harkin, Lamar Alexander, Patty Murray. And then there were these clowns in the House grandstanding for effect.

I put my hold on the book at my library. Looking forward to reading it.

He talks about the presidents he's known.

My favorite story was on Twitter, verified by the reporter in question. I can't find it, so I will paraphrase.

He came off the floor after losing a vote one day, badly wanting a cigarette. A reporter known for tough questioning made a beeline for him, and asked him a curveball. So he went off on her. After using some colorful language, he realized, to his chagrin, that she was pregnant.

He apologized then, and every time he saw her for a year afterward. He said he wound up treating her more nicely than any other reporter he knew.

His point: he remembers screaming at her, and he remembers how he felt about it. He has no recollection at all of the substance of the bill that was voted on that day and that put him in a bad mood. He said, years later, you remember the people, not the substance.

I can respect that.
