    debt limit "debate".  The GOPers were planning to stage another hostage situation but now they might have to actually "negotiate".

    Unless of course, Boehner takes subsidies "off the table".

    I am having a "  " kind of day.

      Been that way for a few days myself.  Went grocery shopping yesterday and everyone was irritable, even the girl bagging.  
      Weather's not helping, I suppose.  Too many days of gray rain and storm..we all need some rays on our hides.  
      And a clear-cut win would be a help, too.  Maybe we'll get one with the dumbass R's in the groove they're in lately.  
      Feels like WE'RE the ones standing on the side of the road sipping a Slurpy, watching the fools down in the ditch trying to get their car going.  When all you have's a twisty-tie and a busted rubber band, outcome's unclear.  :)

        I'm 60ish and was pretty jaded about politics until the Obama campaign and finding DailyKos. Now, I'm a political junkie and have knee-jerkitis all the time. I'm guessing even those who aren't hooked are getting sick and tired of this never ending crap.  I don't think it's possible to have a basic civil exchange with anyone any more.

        Yes, a clear cut win with appropriate media attention would be nice, but I'm not holding my breath.

        I think I'm so maxed out on the lies and the misinformation which seem to ooze out of the GOPers orifices (orifi?).

        I cannot believe that any sane human being would 1) believe anything a GOPer says and/or 2) vote republican.

        I like Slurpies :)
