Just A Quick Reminder
As the impending Government Shutdown approaches, I’d like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that this whole episode wasn’t some accident or unfortunate turn of events despite the best efforts and intentions of everyone involved. This has been an integral part of The Plan since November.
They must have really good chiropractors on Capital Hill to treat all that Republican whip-lash.
Explain to me again how we can elect people to run the government who have nothing but contempt for the very idea of functioning government at all, and then expect them to do anything but defund, dismantle, and eventually shut down said government? Is there any other outcome we could really expect?
Of course the rage-fueled hoard on the right wants to shut down the government. Is that not the well implied goal of the Birchers and their present day Tea-bagging descendants? How is there any question as to who’s at fault here? Oh that’s right, in bizarro American Corporate News Land it’s obviously those awful tax-and-spend Democrats who utterly refused to cut spending and made our poor country go broke by paying welfare to dirty brown people.
I sincerely hope the Democrats pull their collective spines out of the closet this weekend, because come Monday every “news” channel on TV and Radio will be pointing the finger at them over this mess, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. I’m not holding my breath though, given the Democrat’s uncanny ability to fuck up every golden political opportunity the idiots on the right hand them nearly once a week.
It’s going to be infuriating, I can tell already.
