Republicans Pledge to Do Better If America Will Just Trust Them Again

I am guessing that Ohio Republican Congressman John Boehner is good at mixing drinks. Take two parts Contract with America, five parts Declaration of Independence, a pinch or two from the Constitution and you have the preamble to his new Pledge to America.

Mix in pictures of the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, the Lincoln Memorial, the Capitol Building, the White House, and ramble on for 45 pages and you have the whole Pledge.

The problem is that I watched Fox News tonight and even Boehner's closest Republican colleagues can't seem to sell it with a straight face. "Yes, we know we didn't do these things the last time we had power, but this time it will be different. This time we mean it. Trust us. We won't get drunk again." That seems to be the party line.
