We’ve all seen it at the grocery store. First, the child begs for every sweet thing that meets his or her eye. The voice gets a little higher and louder, while our heads turn toward the parent who is somewhat embarrassed but trying to continue her shopping trip. Then, the piercing screams fill the air along with a fall to the floor and kicking feet.
That’s where we are with the Republican House. We’ve been embarrassed by their antics, ignored the childish screams and overheated claims. We now have to decide whether to give in to the wails, hand the candy over or walk out the doors of the store leaving our groceries behind.
