Man takes a nap on a bench
So House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has announced that the House may not go on vacation the week after next as it had originally planned, validating the worst fears of Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger:
“Oh my gosh, it’s going to be long,” said Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a Republican from Illinois. “It’s going to be really crazy. I won’t be shocked if we’re here during the week we were going to be off. It’s going to be an intense couple of months between the [continuing resolution] and the debt limit.”
Yes, oh my gosh! Oh my gosh, House Republicans might cancel the vacation that they had scheduled two weeks from now, even though they just went on a five week vacation. What dedication! They are willing to give up a vacation for no other reason than that they have thus far proved unable to pass any sort of legislation that would prevent a government shutdown on Sept. 30.

And not only that, they might even have "an intense couple of months" thereafter. What a commendable display of dedication to their jobs. Seriously, is this not what you think of when you think of selfless public servants? We're so very lucky to have them.
