My first Facebook fight of 2013? With blog brother Keith.
He rips a snappy Les Mis allusion that goes over my head. I retorted sarcastically that I wish all the people unhappy with the leadership had done more last November to strengthen their hand.
Let's see, whom can I antagonize next...?
'Twas not a Facebook fight, mon ami! (Hey, it's French, in deference to Les Mis.) I thought we both did a fairly good job of taking a swing at the feckless GOP - both the House leadership (such as it is...) and the voters who no-showed in November. So, I chose to see it not so much a fight as a two-pronged attack at the state of politics. In fact, I think Brother JG's contribution made it a fairly neat trifecta.
So - will Boehnert's political career mirror Javert's last act? Will the hoi polloi finally step away from their big-screen TVs and their Xboxes and take their place on the barricades at last with us? Or will America, like Valjean, have to go through the sewers before we see a light at the end of the tunnel?
Dang, this metaphor practically writes itself...
