So the debt limit debate has come to this: John McCain, who you may recall was the GOP’s 2008 standard bearer, is now openly accusing conservatives of actively misleading America with their completely unrealistic demands, which he labeled “deceiving” and “bizarro.”
In a seminal moment in this debate, here’s some video of McCain on the Senate floor today, unleashing an angry tirade at conservatives who are still holding out for a balanced budget amendment as part of any compromise on the debt ceiling. McCain accused them of “deceiving” America into believing such a thing can pass the Senate
Not much for me to add, except to say that we're completely through the looking glass at this point, folks.
This is on top of Lindsey Graham, who, a couple of weeks ago, openly admitted that the Republican Party "Has no one to blame but ourselves" for the debt limit mess.
Could it be?
Has the batshit insanity of the teabaggers FINALLY given the few remaining members of the GOP with even a slight vestige of sanity and decency their "Oh, Shit, What Have We Done?" moment?
