The GOP has officially entered a self-parody feedback loop. Case in point, House Minority leader Rep. Boehner’s spokescritter on Obama’s tax reform commission (italics mine):
House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) offered tepid support for the concept of tax reform but was leery of what he sees as a chance for more tax increases.
“Obviously, the tax code needs reform, but I hope that when the administration talks about generating more revenue that isn’t code for raising taxes,” Boehner spokeswoman Antonia Ferrier said.
The people who collect all of the taxes? They’re called the Internal Revenue Service.
Ferrier has to be a plant. No one is that stupid. Nobody.
And how did we reach the point where burbling these inanities is so commonplace that they go unremarked?
