Don't take this the wrong way, but Boehner has been, for all intents and purposes, the GOP's pre-Iraq invasion version of Saddam Hussein - in other words, not a very likable character, but he was the enforcer that was keeping the crazies under some semblance of control and at bay from tearing each other's throats out and wreaking chaos from within.
The stark reality is that with Boehner's waving of the white flag, it pretty much leaves the nut cases in the House as the ones most likely to quickly and forcefully elbow their way in to that congressional power vacuum.
The Gadfly says "nut cases" because face it dear readers -- assholes like this following clown pretty much have become the ugly and hateful face of the GOP base these days:
Jon Ritzheimer, a member of the "Oath keepers"who describes himself as an "American Patriot who has everything to lose," has threatened to arrest lawmakers who support the Iran nuclear deal, beginning with Sen. Debbie Stabenow.
Ritzheimer, the organizer of the armed Anti-Muslim rally held outside of a Mosque during prayer time in Phoenix earlier this year, is seeking donations for gas money so he and an armed militia can travel to Michigan to arrest Stabenow for treason, then travel to other states in order to arrest other elected officials who voted in support of the Iran Peace Deal.
Capitol police are now investigating an open letter written by Ritzheimer which states, "We are planning on arresting Senator Debbie Stabenow, who voted yes to the Iran Nuke Deal. She will be arrested for treason under Article 3 Section 3 of the Constitution," Ritzheimer wrote, Roll Call first reported.
"We have chosen her as our first target due to our strong ties with the Michigan State Militia and their lax gun laws that will allow us to operate in a manner necessary for an operation like this," the letter continues…
Roll Call reports:
Ritzheimer, 31, claims that after successfully detaining the Michigan Democrat, he and his armed militia "will continue to move across the country and arrest everyone involved with the Iran Nuke Deal" including the president.
Here's a picture of this mentally unstable fuckstick:
So essentially --- Ritzheimer and his creepily narcissistic ilk are the ones demanding that The Gadfly trust them with the levers of governmental power to shape the future of The Gadfly's children's and grandchildren's lives huh? Not if The Gadfly has anything to say about it, and most certainly over The Gadfly's dirty, dead, liberal fucking hippie body if a dire strait of affairs ever calls for it.
On the bright side, The Gadfly isn't going to be getting too worked up over this buffoon Ritzheimer's shirtless threats. The fact that he is reduced to panhandling for "gas money" to fund the mobilization of his red, white and blue jihad pretty much epitomizes what a colossal loser he is and as far as The Gadfly is concerned, he is the kind of loser who truly is the consummate poster child face of the right wing conservative movement in America today and it really cannot be that bad of a thing that the more the country sees and hears from ammosexual morons like him, the likelihood of democracy remaining in the hands of the sane adults "should" be reinforced.
Nonetheless, Boehner's political blood, arguably (some say it began with Eric Cantor), is the first to be spilled, and as someone who has spent the better part of the past 7 years observing and analyzing the actions of the right wing conservatives, The Gadfly can tell you that it most definitely is not going to be the last.
