    whole thing is being allowed to happen in order to drown the Tea Party.  If they succeed in shutting down the govt, and get the blame they deserve, they are out in 2014.  Now, wouldn't both Reid & McConnell benefit from that?

    •  Nonsense! If it's a colossal clownish failure (4+ / 0-)

      a) they will blame Obama, Reid, and Pelosi
      b) They will cry that the Tea Party wasn't extreme enough
      c) Wolverines! Rumsfeld!  

      We do not forgive. We do not forget. The whole world is watching.

      Thinking of this as a strategy, of any sort, is giving far too much credit to all of the Republicans.

      This entire scenario is nothing more or less than a grotesque display of venality so deep it screams pathology and both political calculation and cowardice in its purest form.

      These are the cretins who treat the word empathy a a Beavis & Butthead style punch line.

      Give it a couple of cuts with Occam's Razor and you'll see that's how they roll.
