    this is not just a crack in their armor, this is a fracture that could break the Republicon party apart

    •  this is what i see. they are cracking apart. (0+ / 0-)

      the policy sides of this deal are not great. there is so much left undone and so much exhausting arm twisting still left to live through.

      but the political side of this one looks like a big win to me. there are now 85 repubs who signalled they will vote with the dems (if the dems are holding there noses while they force themselves to vote for it.) that potentially makes those 85 r's the real power in the house for now.

      that still makes for 'deals' we are all going to cringe at ....but it is the breaking point for the far right. the landscape has changed.

      now how do we take advantage of that?'s on the table, under the watermelon she demurred. Thanks, I was planning on shaving anyway he replied.
