Comedy of Errors

A political showdown is brewing in Washington. It is David Axelrod versus....former SNL comedian Al Franken? From Politico:

Sen. Al Franken ripped into White House senior adviser David Axelrod this week during a tense, closed-door session with Senate Democrats.

Five sources who were in the room tell POLITICO that Franken criticized Axelrod for the administration’s failure to provide clarity or direction on health care and the other big bills it wants Congress to enact.

The sources said Franken was the most outspoken senator in the meeting, which followed President Barack Obama’s question-and-answer session with Senate Democrats at the Newseum on Wednesday. But they also said the Minnesotan wasn’t the only angry Democrat in the room.

“There was a lot of frustration in there,” said a Democratic senator who declined to be identified.

“People were hot,” another Democratic senator said.

Democratic senators are frustrated that the White House hasn’t done more to win over the public on health care reform and other aspects of its ambitious agenda — and angry that, in the wake of Scott Brown’s win in the Massachusetts Senate race, the White House hasn’t done more to chart a course for getting a health care bill to the president’s desk.

Apparently his royal highness King Obama is having trouble keeping his Scamalot of thugs, liars, and thieves together. Their pillaging and plundering of the wealth of this nation has left us in such an economic mess that not even the wizard of smart Lord Keynes can conjure up a way out.

And a court jester shall lead them...
