Republicans, get off your dead asses

I have now decided that Rep. John Boehner is the coolest Republican Leader we've had since Newt Gingrich. WP Blogger Central, shouldn't there be an award for this kind of blunt kick your butt honesty from an elected official?

House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) challenged Republicans on Tuesday to get off their “dead asses” and start raising money for the National Republican Congressional Committee.

And the Republican leader wasn’t the only lawmaker berating his GOP colleagues to raise more money for the committee’s March 12 fundraising dinner: According to sources in the room, NRCC Chairman Tom Cole (R-Okla.) and Minority Whip Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) also used a closed-door session at the Capitol Hill Club on Tuesday to challenge Republicans to raise more campaign cash.

The normally upbeat Cole told Republicans that if they don’t start raising more money for the committee, they should get used to life in the minority. Blunt told his colleagues that Sen. John McCain’s spot atop the ballot should give Republicans the opening they need to regain their majority.

I'm in. We need to come up with a really cool name for it. Something like, WP "ASS KICKIN'" AWARD

I'm thinking the logo should be a big boot up a donkey's posterior.

Maybe, we can have an exploding can with the label saying Whoopin' Ass and call it the WP "Can 'o' Whoopass" Award ...

Like FTNC said, if they would just quit the circular firing squad and put the Reagan GOP principles back on the front burner, they wouldn't be in the minority in the first place.

(BTW, FTNC, I used that whole "circular firing squad" line earlier today on another blog comment. Thanks Dude!)
