This final note today, in which Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, says about lawmakers what a lot of people here have been thinking.

Johnson went before the London Assembly today — the city’s version of a legislature — to talk about a budget cut that’s coming. Assembly members apparently had no questions for him, which brought this response from the notoriously outspoken Johnson: “Are you saying they don’t have the guts to put questions to me? Great supine protoplasmic invertebrate jellies.”

Next member of Congress we get on the show, I’m totally calling them a great supine protoplasmic invertebrate jelly. Totally.
