    Probably for a few days anyways. Once the bluff is called, negotiations will start in earnest.

    Let's hope so.

    I hope my last option doesn't come true. It's a joke, but it's also a grim one.

    The bigger (and more personal) question is how much does the Dow fall on Monday? Probably not as much as it would fall if they play games with the debt limit increase.

    The shutdown I don't think will have that big an impact. The debt show down will. Ultimately, I agree with the theory that Boehner should have the shutdown, have public opinion fall on the Republicans to teach them it's not working and then cooperate on a viable plan on the debt ceiling. Default is way more of a problem than shutdown.

    I rely on healthcare more than most. The stunts being pulled right now are very expensive in more ways than one

    I agree. The Cons need to have their fingers bitten by the barracuda now so that they learn the perils of seas and perhaps grow in wisdom. God forbid they rock our little boat in shark invested waters later in the month, subjecting us all to being chomped on by Jaws.

    I give exactly a zero probability of happening.

    Wendy Davis will run. Wendy Davis will lose.
