John Boehner is the Monkey King
A “House of Monkeys” might be a fitting brand for the crazy antics of the House of Representatives except that it may be too kind and an unforgivable slight to the simian species. Political stances and speeches that challenge the positions of most Americans are no secret. The latest reinforcement of the ineptitude of GOP members is the inability to pass a Farm Bill!
Even monkeys would hold the House in contempt
Monkeys have proven how they grasp the meaning of “equality” with a firm hand, unlike the majority of the current body, and there is proof!
What happens when you pay two monkeys unequally? Watch what happens.
GOP out classed by monkeys!
What is it about “equality” of pay, of control of one’s body, of the right to the pursuit of happiness – that the GOP House does not understand? The far-out views of GOP Representatives and Governors of Wisconsin, Michigan, Texas, Ohio, and Virginia have been satirized, booed, and provided fodder for the late-night take shows for the last two years until, now, when the GOP has finally descended below the respectability of monkeys.
It’s a hash tag. “House of Monkeys” is an apt description for Boehner and his cronies and a fitting hash take for the workings of the GOP lead House. It is also the name of my new play “House of Monkeys” – a musical romp through the live, work, and loves of Moliere.
You can read the opening scenes of “House of Monkeys” by clicking the “Moliere Play” .
You will arrive at the “Playful Blog” where you can hear a monkey speak the first few lines of the play.
“House of Monkeys” is a play in search of production. Any help you can provide to find a stage for its production we much appreciated.
We all need to laugh, and what better model for discovering our own grace for laughter than a man who relished laughter and comedy in his work above all else?
