    Hell, its almost Christmas, not Easter!

    • SAR-NOW

      Actually, it’s beginning to seem as if April 19th is upon us.

  • Don Radcliff

    Nailed it.

  • Love the strip,but for once Chris, this isn’t entirely fair. Marlin Stutzman and others went public about how they were deliberately lied to by the GOP leadership. They were told that if they voted for the rule necessary to bring this to a vote, cromnibus would be trashed and a short term CR to fund the government through January substituted instead.

      They were played,I agree.But we don’t need virgins up there, we need men who are, well, worldly.

      • Marlin Stutzman is not exactly a virgin in politics. He’s a decent conservative who’s served two terms. Before that, he was in the Indiana senate, and he’s a small farmer and businessman who supported the last 2013 shutdown (full disclosure..I’m in California, have no relationship with this guy whatsoever and am going strictly by his record).

        What happened to him and several others is the Boehner and McCarthy simply lied to them, and that hasn’t happened before in this way. After all, in normal circumstances they’re supposed to be on the GOP’s side!

        No hateration, Chris, you know that. I just don’t think it’s fair to fault someone for trusting the word of the Speaker and the Whip in a situation like that. He didn’t expect to be bs’d, not that baldly. I doubt he or the others will fall that way again.

        That Boehner was willing to go to these lengths convinces me of something I’ve suspected for a long time… that Obama has something on Boehner, just like I think he likely had something on Justice Roberts.

        He’s not getting any pieces of silver, he’s paying off.

        We’re dealing with the sort of Chicago slime who got elected to the Senate by judge shopping to get his opponent Jack Ryan’s sealed divorce records made public so Ryan was forced to quit his campaign.

        And remember how they found out about General Petraeus’s affair and got him to lie about Benghazi – before they released the info anyway to discredit him and get him to resign? He changed his story on Benghazi afterwards but no one took him seriously after that.

        With the resources Obama commands as president, there’s no limit to what he might have tucked away on various people.

        The congressional GOP needs new leadership…or if that isn’t going to happen, Conservatives need a new party or an organized caucus that votes in a bloc to control the GOP.

        Best Regards,
        Rob

          Ditto this. Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Those in charge would rather wreck the ship and pick up the pieces than give up their power.

    • HB

      Chris already did a strip about this whole thing….don’t you guys remember “just put the tip in”?

      This Stutzman is either a rino, retard or rebrobate….when Boehner asked him to bend forward and promised to only “put the tip in”…Stutzman said Yes Sir!—may I have another? His district should recall him and primary him next time….if there is a next time.

    I believe it is about time for Clair Wolfe to make an update.

    Methinks the hour is getting late.

    • Oh, aye my friend.

  • But back to the original thought I was having, the first two comments apply to a point. But remember what happened after that paycheck.

  • B Woodman

    Yeah. Crybaby Boner would like his 30 pieces. . . . . of worthless fiat paper dollars.

  • This crap with the “progressives” has been fermenting since teddy roosevelt.
    We are NOT going to unf*@# it overnight.
    Like we say in the Infantry – “If it’s 50 miles in, it’s gonna be 50 miles back out.”

    • Oliver Heaviside

      Teddy Roosevelt? The Republican? 😉

  • Bill G

    It was brilliantly orchestrated.

  • Bill G

    And BTW, I love the road signs.

  • Guitanguran

    Road signs were SO cool had to photoshop that part to FB. (with proper linkerage and attribution, of course)

  • Pamela

    Trusting the majority of denizens in DC is tantamount to trusting a man who says he won’t come in your mouth.

    Anyone know the going rate for pitchforks and torches?

  • Oliver Heaviside

    I’ve come to believe that the only real cure is to repeal the income tax amendment and fund the Federal government by having it assess the States, as the founders more-or-less intended. He who has the money calls the tune, and as long as the Feds have most of the money, bucking them is political suicide. Want to see funding cut for every project in your state? Buck the leadership.

    There’s no point in having either “side” elect my-way-or-the-highway representatives, that leads to either paralysis or tit-for-tat retaliation. Sure, it would be great to have a truly politically-conservative administration, but sooner or later the progressives will win an election and retaliate by doing to us whatever we did to them.

    We’re still supposed to be a government of laws and rules, not men or bullets.

    • RegT

      “We’re still supposed to be a government of laws and rules, not men or bullets.”

      Supposed to be? That part of life in this country is over, has been for a while. None of us want to start the dance (understandably), but there is no rule of law, and only ammo will set us free.

    • Guitanguran

      Well then, how about the Article V movement to get the States to get us back to basics?

  • SteveInCO

    What am I missing here? I thought DHS (including the amnesty BS) was only funded into February.

    • Chris Muir

      Boehner did the same thing with Obamacare…which is still here.It’s a ‘pretend’ show, because once a program starts,it never gets recalled.

    • Subotai Bahadur

      It is all a shell game. The money for the implementation for the Amnesty Decree/Executive Action/Imperial Whim/Fuehrerbefehl [We don’t know what it is, because it is not in writing. The bureaucracy is implementing it in violation of statute based on Obama’s verbal orders. Which if we had an opposition party would be a hell of an opening to attack this.] was not in the DHS budget, but was placed in other agencies. $1Billion in HHS plus others. The Republicans did this knowingly, and freezing the DHS budget has no effect on Amnesty.

      You cannot even PRETEND that there is a reason to ever vote Republican again. We can be grateful that they have permanently put the lie to the “lesser of two evils” claim. We live in a one-party state. Electoral politics are moot in a one-party state.
