If you had to guess what a “Sugarcoated Satan Sandwich” was, would you assume:
A. New show on Comedy Central
B. Something you would find in Nancy Pelosi’s lunchbox.
C. Friday Night at Barney Frank's Apartment.
The answer is, surprisingly, “None of the Above”.
As the debt deal went through over the weekend, many Republicans felt beleaguered that they were forced to give so much to get a deal accomplished. But you wouldn’t know that by the reaction from the Democrats, who acted as if they had just been violated by the GOP.
Case in point: Kansas City Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver, whose reaction boarded on fanatical:
Kansas City Congressman and Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, does not like the proposed debt ceiling deal.
Sunday night on MSNBC, Cleaver called it “a Sugarcoated Satan Sandwich”.
Tell us how you really feel. I’d hate to see what he orders at the deli.
