Here is who might be squirming today.
  1. Albuquerque Public Safety Chief Darren White, who despite his love affair with TV cameras and the press, cant seem to be rid of them right now.  And for good reason.
  2. Mayor Richard Berry, who for some unfathomable reason is putting up with this circus instead of cutting his losses over the extreme bad judgement of White.
  3. Marty Chavez, who as Mayor created the job of Public Safety Chief for the city in order to reward a political supporter at a cost of $200K a year or more.  Will this haunt him?
  4. Speaker of the House John Boehner who is having to put up with the kook Eric Cantor and the Tea Party infidels who are willing to risk America's credit rating.
  5. Eric Cantor, who must be starting to think this was all a bad idea, except that I don't believe he knows how to think.
  6. NM republican Representative Steve Pearce who wants unnecessary government spending curtailed but sits by while the eastern New Mexico peanut farmers get their subsidies.  Not to mention the oil and gas boys.
  7. Every elderly social security recipient who may not get a check in August if the house republicans get their way.
I am sure there are more squirmers out there but seven is enough for one day.

We certainly do live in "interesting times".

Yep, except for elderly who need their SS checks, the rest are true night crawlers.
