A Peek Behind the Curtain at Our Incompetent Congress

Roger Kimball, PJ Media

I opined back in 2008 that there was  a "burgeoning democratic anger preparing to expel the smirking, incompetent toadies who orchestrated and presided over this catastrophe." In a way, I suppose that the election of Donald Trump was a fulfillment of that prediction.  But though a majority of representatives and senators now have Rs next to their names, the incompetent toady factor remains high, very high.

The Republican Congress Must Get Its Act Together NOW

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The Republicans in the legislature are a disgrace.  They can't get it together to compromise on anything and move forward -- no tax reform, no healthcare, no nothing.  They are overwhelmed by a combination of overweening ego and rigid ideology -- a lethal cocktail.  What their behavior is doing is creating an inevitable situation where they lose control of Congress and ultimately the White House to the Democrats.
