    Right after securing the Budget Deal, Paul Ryan immediately came out and announced they would hold the February/March Debt Ceiling raise hostage to extract more Federal spending cuts to further their deficit reduction goals.  We all know how caved last time they tried this.  Now with diminishing deficit concerns I frankly find this latest threat laughable.  If the Dems. even consider further deficit reducing spending cuts in trade for a debt ceiling raise, they are bigger fools than the Republicans who are again threatening a US default.

      another fiscal crisis in an election year, you can be assured of that.
      Ryan is trying to put the shine back on his Tea Party credentials, that's all.

      Your beliefs don't make you a better person. Your behavior does.

    •  I had to laugh at the two women on the list. (13+ / 0-)

      There's something barely within-six-sigma-feasible, something not wholly absurd about listing amongst one's Top Ten journalists the former Miss South Africa: Lara Logan.

      The Top Two are openly gay males, Greenwald and Farrow, so a breeding female does have an appearance of balancing things out. Can't have a rainbow where all the stripes are purple and blue.

      Put LL at #3 and all's well.

      But then there's #4. And it's just, well..... they want us to think the fourth brightest journalist in the country is MEGAN KELLY.

      That Megan Kelly, formerly Megan Kendall. The one with the $999 bent nose job and $18,000 boobs. The one with the on-air tag line: "They Lie! They Lie!"

      The one believes in Santa Claus and Jesus equally, plus admonishing those who doubt it that they're both White. That is not a passing comment, a lark. It was a 15 minute segment on her own show done in the lobby at Murdoch Hell. She also procured a couple outside bigots to go on camera and tout her beliefs.

      (BTW: Jesus was White ?????)

      Megan Fxxxxxg Kelly. I am praying to live long enough to see her a 60-year old pub drunk down at Finnegans. I'll likely be too senile at that point to remember who Megan Kelly used to be. Still...
