Hi kids! Long time, no see. Yeah, I know it’s my fault. I wouldn’t be here today, but I couldn’t say no to Raisinette FOTC. She asked me to commemorate the exit of Batshit Bachmann from her too-long tenure in Congress and public life in general. She requested that I use Bye Bye Birdie and not to mention that she sings Put on a Happy Face in the shower. OOPS!! So let me see if I remember how to do this.
From CNN Politics:
Washington (CNN) — Rep. Michele Bachmann says now that she’s leaving Congress, she can “take the handcuffs off.”
Bachmann had harsh words for House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), calling Thursday night’s vote to pass a government funding bill — which Bachmann opposed — the most consequential of her four terms. She voted against the bill Thursday.
She said Boehner had linked arms with President Barack Obama to avert a government shutdown without defunding Obama’s executive action overhauling U.S. immigration rules. “The cake was baked months ago,” she said.

From The Fix at The Washington Post:
Ted Cruz doesn’t care if John Boehner hates him. He likes it.
Ted Cruz is running for president.
No, he hasn’t announced it yet. But if you can tell a man by his actions […].
The latest example […] came Wednesday, when WaPo’s Bob Costa reported that Cruz was actively encouraging conservative House Republicans to oppose the spending bill pushed by Boehner aimed at addressing the crisis of undocumented children crossing at the southern border.
Kids, I don’t know whether to laugh or cry (Boohoo Boehner always goes with the latter). Do we celebrate the demise of Widdle Ewic Cantor’s political career, or do we mourn the fact that Teabagger fruitcake David Brat just might be the next asswipe in Congress?

Happy Passover and Happy Easter to all the Raisinettes who celebrate, with love from Macho, Honeybear, Pudgie and Rocky…

Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 15,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

From RH Reality Check:
Virginia Republicans Gov. Bob McDonnell and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli have gotten their way; the state board of health has followed their directives to approve the unnecessary abortion provider regulations proposed by the state legislature, which are meant to close as many abortion clinics in the state as possible. Just a few months later, the effects of that legislation are already being felt.
