Prediction, and not so tongue in cheek:
As Steve Benen notes, the Republicans in Washington are so unserious about our nation’s problems that even Bart Simpson is more serious. I think that’s clear, given John Boehner’s whining about the timing of President Obama’s jobs speech to Congress, Eric Cantor’s threats to hold Hurricane aid for Irene hostage, and Sarah Palin’s pouting about that witch. I expect they already tell fart jokes in the GOP caucus, and it would surprise nobody if fart jokes comprise most of a GOP jobs plan in response to Obama’s speech, now scheduled to be viewed by nobody as it is up against the Packers season opener next week. (I’ll be watching the Phillies that night against the Brewers, so I won’t see the speech live, either.)
Fart jokes. That’s what I’m expecting. Fart jokes.
