Did you feel it last night? The cosmic “opposition”?
“Every two years, Mars reaches a point in its orbit called "opposition," when the planet lies directly opposite the sun in Earth's sky.”
This amazing cosmic event, called “Opposition,” happens just once every 2 years. It produces a spectacular view of a bright orange Mars rising near sunset which remains visible all night long.
And apparently it also triggers another fleeting cosmic lunar event: the Republicans align in actual “Opposition” to Democrats. Nobody is sure why, butt scientists speculate it has something to do with shifting gravity, cosmic radiation or upcoming Congressional elections. Whatever the cause, GOP leaders were spotted around the Capital yesterday practicing stern facial expressions, sans tears.
Speaker Boehner warned Big Guy that implementing immigration reform would be “almost impossible” if he continues to deploy his pen to sign executive orders bypassing Congress:
NO IMMIGRATION REFORM!!!!
And the Ways and Means Committee is dipping its own pen in the inkwell, preparing harsh memos to Ricky’s Department of Justice, strongly urging him to pursue criminal charges against former IRS employee and Loyal Obot, Lois Lerner. (Ha!, to quote Chris Matthews.)
Not to be cheated out of his moment of Opposition, the House Oversight Committee, Chairman Darrell Issa is preparing to hold a contempt vote against the former IRS Exempt Organizations Division head on Thursday. It will be a proforma gesture, as it seems pretty obvious that Lois, along with the rest of Team Obama, has nothing butt contempt for Congress.
You can see even more of the effects of the unusual lunar lineup in this clip, where old No-nads Boehner comes from out of nowhere to pile on the Republican demand for justice in the IRS phony scandal:
And here, you see Eric Holder’s angry reaction when reminded that he’s been in criminal contempt of the House for over 2 years. Clearly he finds this Republican opposition both unexpected and unacceptable:
So sit back, relax, and enjoy the theme song for this biennial lunar show while you can, as it is – alas - always fleeting.
And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon
