Paul, you've now risen to high comedy.
As Beatrice said to Benedict, "No one marks you."
But we do laugh a lot.
See the new CBS poll. . .
Here's the bottom line: if the spineless John Boehner cared more about the orderly function of government than he does about his own pathetic career, he would allow a clean budget bill to have an up or down vote in the House where, as everybody who has been paying attention knows, it would pass easily. Such a sensible, fair and patriotic move would obviate the need for any of the confusion, and other nonsense caused by the shutdown. Of course, it would cost him his speakership and pathetic $200,000 salary, and let's face it, that's the important thing.
I love the article you cited, especially where it says "Obama did this," and "Obama did that." I can just picture the president in the oval office now, saying, "Hey, get some guys over there to close down the parking lot at Mt. Vernon. And tell them not to forget those three extra spaces over at the South end!" Of course, there's no bigotry in any of this, just a heartfelt disagreement with absolutely everything this president ever did, ever wants to do, or ever will do. Sight unseen.
Meanwhile, I note that the Affordable Care Act seems to be generating quite a lot of interest and enthusiasm. My, my.
