Big news this evening: Speaker Pushover has appointed Mrs. Rex to head a committee that will do something-or-another relating to Mizzou.
How do I know that this is all a show and will accomplish nothing? Because committees are where good ideas and positive political energy go to die.
Though I wonder if Speaker Pushover’s choice of Mrs. Rex was intended in some way to send a message to the Andy Blunt stables. As if to say, we wanted to do a lot more, but you armed with a big phat contract from Middleton bribed us not to, and therefore, fuck you, I’ll appoint the wife of the impresario of a stable that competes with yours.
