Poised as we are on the passage of the newly expanded and befestooned bailout recovery legislation, it would be a shame if the rush of events swamped last week’s eloquent expression by Representative Boehner. As Politico famously reported:

In a closed-door session with House Republicans, Minority Leader John A. Boehner just called the financial rescue deal a “crap sandwich” – then said he’ll vote for it when it comes to the floor Monday.

In case any TNN readers have any doubts about exactly what Leader Boehner was saying, according to the Urban Dictionary, “crap sandwich” is: “Used to define something so horiffic or piss ass poor that the only thing worse would be the consumption of a big old crap sandwich.” (As opposed, say, to a “crap salad” — which is something else entirely.)
