    The metaphor is all wrong. This isn't a cliff, it's a hump of dirt. John Boehner is Roscoe T. Coltrane and Grover Norquist is Boss Hogg. President Luke and Majority Leader Bo just need to rev the General Lee, not put on the brakes, and hit that dirt hump. The landing may be a little rough but the economy will survive and then accelerate.

    If they brake, though, because Roscoe and Boss Hogg tell them there's a dangerous cliff ahead, they're more likely to get stuck in the mud and never get out.
