    No, you're eager to assume the worst so that you don't, like, miss out.  It's why this place is such a mess lately.

    Nothing happened.  There was supposed to be a meeting, and Republicans didn't show.  Then they made a statement.  Who cares?  Why is this worrisome?  Are there sources from the Democrats or administration saying things that sound bad?  No.  Just Jed thinking that they sound bad, because it's the kind of thing that they would do.  In other words, they're about to do something weak because they always do things that are weak, like this one, which they haven't done yet but probably will, confirming in advance that they're as weak as reputed.

      Dems will not vote to proceed with just a middle class permanent extension, or even a permanent middle class extension with a temp upper class extension.  they will fold....bet you $25.

        I wouldn't be surprised if that is what happens.  

        But that's not why I popped off.  

        My specific complaint is that this particular story is a non-story and has no bearing on whatever eventually happens.  But it's making people who were already mad good and madder, even while it reports... nothing.  Why is that?  Why does that describe so many front-page and rec-listed stories lately?  

        I find that trend alarming.
