Yes, We Did
This would only be a better video if they spliced in a clip from Scanners at the end...you know...exploding head-time.
Poor Boehner. I bet he thought he looked so courageous and filled with moral outrage.
All he really did was look like a jack-o-lantern throwing a tantrum.
In all seriousness, though, I do think Pumpkinhead represents something tangible here. He's the face of people afraid of losing their privilege and power, afraid of history and change, afraid of everything that doesn't look just like himself in the mirror. No wonder the neo-Nazis are feeling so liberated these days. Guys like Pumpkinhead are now publicly channeling all their sick masturbatory racial fear fetishes, right on the floor of the United States Congress. Good job, Johnny. Better hope they don't blame you for not stopping Obama. They turn easily.
