    "Shutdown is not the answer"? Of course it is not the bloody answer (whatever the question is) - it is simply what happens when budget negotiations run into a wall.

    You can spin it any way you want, but the fact is: the GOP now does contain a (surprisingly influential) minority of politicians who seem to mean what they say and do what they promised - I know, shocking...

    Maybe the voters had enough of this "integrity" stuff, and they are about to run in droves back to those who lie to them, manipulate them, and probably laugh at them behind closed door. I am not being sarcastic: perhaps they are; happened before.

    But I would rather bet on a very different outcome.

    Beyond that people, there seems to be a lot of liberal progressives (even the ones afraid to call themselves such) with crystal balls, already predicting out beyond 2014, to 2016....I say, keep it up! Though I doubt that when your predictions are proven to be wrong they'll be the same ones at that time saying "I never said that...." What a sad day this is in America.

    Dear beloved, we gather here today to mourn (or celebrate) the death of the Tea Party Movement. Begun as a direct response to Obama's election, these savages have ensured that they don't get their way and nobody else does either. Also, let us take a moment to remember that they have, in their selfish way, irreparably harmed the Republican party. It will take Republicans years to recover from this. However, I am sure that after they lose the house in 2016, they'll return to their senses. Let us pray that St. Palin and St. Bachman will chime in this discussion and make it all worse for an already moribund Republican party.
    The problem is that it isn't a strategy and it is actually the Democrats that shutdown the Government.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    This shutdown is pure, unadulterated faggotry by a bunch of spoiled, whiny bitches.

    None of what you said.

    Has anything to do with what I said.

    If you are for a government shut down.

    You are an extremist.

    Period.
