    It is not a "political Crisis."

    This is an existential crisis for American governance. Lose this battle and we've lost the bloodless part of this war.

    Lose this battle and it morphs into armed civil conflict and there are not enough military troops to put down quickly literal rebellions occurring simultaneously all over the country, which will be supported by large number of radical elected sheriffs, "Oath Keepers," etc.

    There are over 300 million guns in the hands of the "People," and likely a strong majority of those people identify much more strongly with the Right.

    I'm just Double Tapped the hell out.

    •  The title is satirical (3+ / 0-)

      In the cartoon Republicans are releasing actual killer robots on the population and the Village pundits are still saying well, it's just the two sides disagreeing about politics, each side has a point, both sides do it, and so on.

      It's not a political crisis, it's a shakedown. That's the cartoonist's point, i.e. the same as yours.
