The Case For Speaker Boehner

It's always better to win than to lose, but I'm coming around to the belief that it wouldn't be so terrible if Democrats lost the House in November.
Why? It's simple. Voters don't particularly care for Republicans right now (two words: Bush-Cheney). They'll really start to dislike them if they get a full-frontal, in-your-face, round-the-clock dose of John Boehner and his colorful gang of pissed-off teabaggers, brazen corporate bagmen, arithmetically challenged troglodytic Social Security privatizers, hypocritical Christian gay-bashers, FOX-fueled Obama-trashing unreconstructed southern-fried Klan-sympathizers, Medicare-gutting Gingrich-recalling school-lunch-slashing budget balancers, paranoid Kenya-obsessed Hawaii-pestering birthers, gun-toting Hispanic-hating immigrant-dissing Minuteman wannabes, draft-dodging chickenhawk warmongers, smooth-talking Gordon Gekko-admiring regulation-ignoring blow-dried Wall Street errand boys, brain-dead George W. Bush-era-defending supply-side-Kool-Aid-drinking Laffer Curve leftovers, bloodsucking backbench Congressional time-servers and pharmaceutical industry lobbyists-in-training, Glenn Beck-reciting Sarah Palin-quoting Michele Bachmann-following wingnut publicity hounds, straight-up stone crazy lunatic after-hours-special-order-delivering right-wing speechifiers, and (of course) mealy-mouthed talking-points-spouting Republican "leaders" who know full well that their Party's true agenda is so loathsome (when it's not simply ludicrous) that they dare not speak of it publicly.
And that's only a partial list.
Democrats haven't been very good at pointing out that the Republican Party is beyond the pale. Maybe the GOP circus needs to come to town.
