    especially with the big-money donors. Wall St. was not at all pleased with the possibility of a default, though it apparently could tolerate a shutdown. What I expect to see in the next 14 months (through the 2014 election) is a divide between True Believers and Survivors -- the latter will listen to large donors (non-Koch variety) who do not want them to crash the economy, and will look hard at poll numbers, and reflect in sober moments on how badly this strategy played.

    And as the ACA implementation takes hold, and (as with gay marriage) the Civilized World does not come to a fiery end, it will be harder to keep fundraising and ginning up support over that.
