House Republicans voted unanimously against that “stimulus package,” prompting faint praise from E. M. Zanotti:
Not that I’m not proud of them. But right now, I’m going to treat them like the dog that manages to poop outside. I’m just really, really happy that I don’t have to clean the crap off the living room rug. If they do it again, I’ll be happy again. If they do what I expect them to do and miss the target, I won’t be surprised. Right now, I’m happy to give them a treat, a pat on the head, and send them off on their merry way, possibly to put giant teeth marks in my brand new dining room furniture.
Now that’s my idea of Low Expectations.
