    The gipper is drunk on libertarianism, the preferred drink of goofy Americans.

    I'd love to know what kind of deal was cut - if any - for Ryan to take this horrific gig.

    And I wonder if such a deal would include some kind of guarantee against mutiny.

    This just isn't a time for reasonable Republicans committed to cooperative legislating.

    Ryan forced the far right of the House to commit to supporting him, or, he told them, he would open up the bills he wants to a vote that would allow Dems to override the TP. The TP members hate him but can do nothing about it.

    I think it was back in 2015 the Republicans began reading the Constitution aloud to the Congress. It was done with great fanfare and patriotism. Is that still going on or did Republicans drop it? If dropped, anyone remember how long it lasted?
