No, this is not snark or satire. It's not an Onion article either..........
Whilst GOP aides are taking the lead and throwing Ted Cruz under the bus, at least one of their Senators is following their lead.
Buried deep in a TPM article on the debt deal, we have this little nugget:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said he was "proud" of Boehner's handling of the crisis. Then within moments he pleaded with Democrats to bail out the GOP, which he admitted has "screwed up" and "really did go too far" in the shutdown and debt limit standoffs.
"We won't be the last political party to overplay our hand," he said. "It might happen one day on the Democratic side. And if it did, would Republicans, for the good of the country, kinda give a little? We really did go too far. We screwed up. But their response is making things worse, not better."
"would Republicans, for the good of the country, kinda give a little?"
He'll be lucky if he doesn't wake up tomorrow morning with a bloody horse head in his bed.
Beyond that, I'm...........................speechless. So much wrong with what he said. Not least the claim that the GOP would show ANYONE mercy.
Not America, not the world.
