Hey kids! Remember this?
Those were the good old days, weren't they? When a vice president swore in the worst and most insulting way using the worst and most insulting word right there on the Senate floor! Aimed directly at a Democratic U.S. Senator. Wowzers, glad that never happened again!
I spoke too soon.
Via Politico has a thing or two to say about why the Do Nothing Congress is in the insane state of incivility and gridlock they're clearly in:
House Speaker John Boehner couldn’t hold back when he spotted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the White House lobby last Friday.
It was only a few days before the nation would go over the fiscal cliff, no bipartisan agreement was in sight, and Reid had just publicly accused Boehner of running a “dictatorship” in the House and caring more about holding onto his gavel than striking a deal.
“Go f— yourself,” Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources present.
Reid, a bit startled, replied: “What are you talking about?”
Boehner repeated: “Go f— yourself.”
