Hissy Fit Republican “Bipartisanship”

Sick and Tired of Obstructionist Republicons

Webster defines bi·par·ti·san: adjective “of, relating to, or involving members of two parties ; specifically : marked by or involving cooperation, agreement, and compromise between two major political parties”

Webster, conversely defines par-ti-san: noun or adjective “a firm adherent to a party, faction, cause, or person ; especially : one exhibiting blind, prejudiced, and unreasoning allegiance

Crapaud can't describe the current state

of the minority in Congress any more succinctly than

John Amato recently did in his Blog, Crooks and Liars:

No matter what harm has been caused by the Republican party to our country and applies especially when they have been voted out of office because of that harm, any piece of Democratic legislation being discussed may be attacked with the intent of watering it down or destroying it completely (voided) at any time as long as one conservative in Congress has a hissy fit.

The traditional media must immediately validate their hissy fit by repeating said hissy fit talking points over and over again in print, on the Internets, on radio and on TV as many times as necessary to accomplish said goal of compromising the legislation that the hissy fit is applicable to.

False information is also allowed to be transmitted by the hissy fitter and the media in an effort to implement the Conservative Hissy Fit exception. An alternative name that may be used is the Republican Hissy Fit exception. “

Well, while we Crapauds are not known for being succinct, we are rather direct. So let's try this: Obstreperous obstructionist Republicans in the House are so uncannily unprincipled, they fawn publicly over the President's bipartisan outreach, then unilaterally and unanimously vote against the very concessions they extorted from him. Crapaud says take off the gloves, exercise your mandate and save this country. Well, that's why no Crapaud will ever be elected president.

Crapaud also recommends what Mother Jones

says on the current state of "unilateral" bipartisanship.

And Stephen Colbert's Take--PRICELESS
