    Historically, Congressional Democrats have not been very good at making Republicans pay the price for their destructive tactics.

      And Americans have short memories.  By the time the 2014 elections roll around, they won't remember a little ol' gov't shutdown, brought on by tea-party ideologues.  

      Still, I hope Cruz and his band of lemmings do shut the government down.  Let them.  The stock market will take a huge tumble, and nothing upsets the 1%ers like losing money, which will likely lead to more changes in the makeup of the GOP than anything else.

        but the GOP house is talking some crazy. Its like they're driving an MG and they want to play chicken, and we're in a Mack truck. Are they serious?

        I think they will avoid it, but the crazy is rampant. Quite a show.

        A true craftsman will meticulously construct the apparatus of his own demise.
