This headline reminds me of a movie scene...

House GOP Leaders: We Can Pass Gun Control, Immigration, Without Republican Support

With Boehner et. al standing in for James Earl Jones cast as "The Sheikh" in the penultimate scene of Marty Feldman's The Last Remake of Beau Geste.

If you haven't seen it--and why not?--the surviving Legionaires and the Tuaregs have ridden off together, and The Sheikh is riding madly after them, yelling
Wait for me!  Wait for me!  I'm your leader!  How can I lead you if you won't wait for me?!
