Castrated and Compromised

By Creature

Our vice president has been summoned by a dictator, our president has been stood up by a puppet leader, and now the bipartisan panel charged with finding domestic political cover for a situation out of our control have reached a toothless compromise as they jerk each other off, pat themselves on the back, and enjoy their Oprah moment.

“I think everyone felt good about where we ended up,” one person involved in the commission’s debates said after the group ended its meeting. “It is neither ‘cut and run’ nor ‘stay the course.’ ”

I'll leave the deconstruction of the compromise [gradual pullback with lots of talk] to those at a higher pay-grade, but at least everyone involved felt really fucking good about it.

Circle jerk more.
