Thread: Republicans and the Beetlejuice football players.

There’s a group of football players in the wonderful Tim Burton movie Beetlejuice, one of whom delivers a great line, which goes as follows. “Hey coach, I don’t think we survived that crash.” I don’t to spoil it any more than I have to, but it’s funny in the context it’s delivered in. 🙂

I was reminded of this line when I read about the House Republicans finally realizing that they are the minority party. It’s as if Cantor said to Boehnoer “Hey boss, I don’t think we survived the election.”

Now maybe we can resume having some semblance of government, the voters having spoken, and finally the Republicans having heard.
