John Boehner admits "No One Reads the Platform"

These idiots

openly don't give a shit about laws and people anymore. They should all be removed from office.

yea ...

it's tough for Johann to read anything because his brain is pickled. His brain is completely saturated with whiskey...probably imported from France. Or possibly the sun has fried his brain. Boehner is a crying shame. Literally.


^^^^^ Please add this to the main post ^^^^^

It's still good that they got those things in the platform.

Boehner and his ilk may not read it (as they don't read bills or the Constitution or anything else), but we will.


I knew it...

The whole platform compromise was bunk.

The best we got was "we changed the platform" except that nobody reads the platform according to Boehner. The establishment has ZERO interest in us changing it. They have the power to ignore us (despite whatever the rules might say) and are skilled at BS'ing to placate us.

Honesty is a gaffe. How sad.
