You probably saw that John Boehner, former Speaker of the House, called his fellow Republican, Ted Cruz, "Lucifer in the flesh" and "a miserable son of a bitch."
Of course, Boehner has been a big part of the problem. He, and other Republican leaders, have long tried to use the crazies for political advantage. Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are their fault, and the fault of earlier Republicans who started down this path of using racism, sexism, religious hysteria, and xenophobia for political advantage. (Don't get me started!)
But as amusing as that was, I had to note this comment by "Mike" on a Yahoo article about it:
Prince of Darkness to Sue Boehner for Defamation!
Gates of Hell (AP)
Lee Atwater, Chief Legal Officer for Lucifer, Scratch, Mephistopheles, Diabolus and Associates has just confirmed that the Prince of Darkness will indeed be suing former Speaker of the House John Boehner in the State of Ohio for Defamation.
"You learn to tolerate a whole lot of bad press on our line of work, but enough is enough" Mr. Atwater said reading from a prepared statement.
"We don't mind our names being dragged through the mud whenever there is a natural disaster, act of terrorism, or pointless loss of life on a massive scale just like what the previous Republican Administration gleefully delivered in Iraq and Afghanistan."
"Or even when a Former G.O.P. Speaker of the House turns out to be a child-molesting waste of flesh from way way back. That stuff all comes with the territory and we accept it. But getting characterized as being as low as Ted Cruz is a horse of a different color as far as we are concerned."
"Therefore we will be seeking the souls of both Mr. Boehner and Mr. Cheney (if he ever had one,) as direct compensation for being slanderously compared to the likes of Mr. Cruz in a public forum plus Rush Limbaugh's weight in gold bullion six times over in punitive damages."
"This demand automatically escalates to twenty Limbaugh weight units of fine gold should Ms. Failurina ever even once open her mouth in public again...."
I don't know anything about "Mike." And I don't normally read the comments at Yahoo Finance. I just happened to notice this and had to give it some love.
