    Ah, the reverso-meme. Only in teapartybizarroworld is forcing the House to actually vote a "trick".

    Boehner has used procedural tricks to keep a clean CR from a floor vote. I hope the Democrats can circumvent that trickery and force the GOP cowards to go on record.

    It might be a sufficient exit strategy for some of the less irrational Republican to climb on board. It's murky enough to look like the Democrats are forcing it, so that the remaining rational Republicans in the House might help it along.

    I assume that they'll figure out some obscure way to get their way in the end. That helps nail the inevitable disastrous results to them though. If the electorate begins to think while there effectively remains such a thing it will go badly for Reid's Party.

    that didn't take long to go from policy discussion to "libruls bad... herp derp."

    Chaos is here to stay until one of the two major parties obtains a decisive and persistent advantage over the other.

    Passing laws without the approval of the President or the Senate . . . I always wanted a parliament in the United States, but I didn't expect anyone would try to jerry rig one out of our current system of checks and balances.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
