    until they get mad at something then they know exactly what is happening.  We need to stop taking cues from Red State as to whether we're on the right path.  These people are psychotic or idiots, or psychotic idiots, and they don't know their ass from a hole in the ground.

    The revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

      A bunch of 'em voted for a major tax increase for the first time in 20 years.  You don't have to be Einstein to know when you've been semi-rolled.

      Didn't many of the "nay" votes come from a combo of remaining teabaggers and blue dog Dems?

      Socialist Senator Sanders voted "aye" and so did almost all of the progressives in Congress.

      Again, take a look at that WaPo chart.

      •  The WaPo chart is wrong (0+ / 0-)

        in that this is not the final deal.  The cuts will happen in 60 days, this was just the first part of the deal.  The GOP base may have taken a hit, but this is far from over.

        •  Still kind of disagree with you on this (0+ / 0-)

          The deal  that passed yesterday is FINAL.  It's done.  There may be other things coming and no doubt there will be huge battles but a tax increase in the neighborhood of TWO THIRDS OF A TRILLION DOLLARS is in the bag - over - finito.
