    I do think however that both sides have other things they want, and are absolutely willing to let the government shut down if it means getting what they want eventually.

    The current Republicans have the reputation as the party of "NO!" They don't have a reputation that can be damaged by a shutdown. They have opted to kowtow to their TeaBaggers to their detriment. I repeat, "a flock of birds, a herd of cows, a gaggle of geese, and a Congress of baboons." Some things don't change.

    I believe they were elected to serve their constituents, not anyone else...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Will Boehner blink and lift the "Hastert" rule when the Senate cleans up this steaming spray of liquid manure?
    I'm hearing he only has one more of these to stay Speaker.
    Btw, why do House Repubs like to wreck the Christmas economy, this being the third in a row?
