It’s October 9, 2015 and time for Friday Yes or No, where I ask myself questions with twice as many possible answers as are available at a Republican House caucus.
Q1: Do House Republicans embarrass the United States?
Q2: Will this week’s display of complete incompetence in operating their piece of the nation’s government come back to bite the Republicans?
Q3: Is that because there are a surprisingly large number of people in this country who think chaos, gridlock, bickering, petty nonsense and other non-functions are how things are supposed to go?
Q4: And because they think this is a good way to show how much they hate President Obama?
Q5: Is it surprising that the Obama administration is having a tough time figuring out how to sort out the mess in Syria?
Q6: Is Russia a possible help in getting this way too long running crisis resolved?
Q7: Should guys who complain about Jessica Mendoza doing baseball analysis on ESPN just shut up and get their wives/girlfriends who are enjoying the game a beer?
Q8: On the other hand, are the guys who complain about Jessica Mendoza likely to have wives or girlfriends?
Q9: Is it hard to think about much else when the Mets are about to start down a treacherous postseason path in Los Angeles?
Q10: But will they prevail against the Dodgers?
