The GOP of today is an even worse splinter of the GOW (Grand Old Wimpies). You can fill in the P from a list of five letter words. Actually, it's the perfect name for the Congressional leadership. Baleful, bawling, whinny, snotty, cry baby, run home with a stubbed toe --- the list is endless. You can count on the, as moderates, when backed into a corner, the gun at their head, disaster looming for the few freedoms left that they'll create even more novel ways to surrender.
Shame they don't all speak French. They could attend the Foreign Legion when they celebrate their great defeats.
