According to John Boehner, the events happening in Washington, DC, now are “not a game.” He’s right about that; they are a tired, old movie that the GOP insist on re-running every few months. President Obama plays the part of Austin Powers while Ted Cruz is Dr. Evil, supported by a cast of villains including Utah’s own Mike Lee as Mini-Me. The ratings of the GOP drop every time the movie is run. Critics in the media divide the blame equally, but voters assign more blame to the GOP than to the Democrats. Just imagine how low the GOP ratings would fall if the media did their job and correctly assigned the blame to the GOP.

What do Mitt Romney and Austin Powers have in common? Both are international men of mystery, Austin more international than Mitt, except for his money. Austin Powers movies are comedies, while if elected, Mitt Romney will be a tragedy. Mitt will not be granting anymore interviews between now and the election. Will he be more or less available to the news media after the election?
