    If Boehner needs Dem votes, maybe the price should be Unemployment Extension.

      We can't do Unemployment Extension unless we can get it out of the Senate, where we are one vote short of cloture.

      Tom Toles is also thinking along the same lines today. I don't know how to get a date-independent link to today's cartoon, which shows an elephant squashed between two plates driven together by heavy screws. The bottom one is labeled Economic Reality and the top one Political Reality. The elephant calls out,

      OK! OK! Raise the ceiling!
      and then, still squashed between the plates, asks at the bottom of the strip, as is Toles's way,
      …but what will you give me for that?

      Back off, man. I'm a logician.—GOPBusters™
