GOP in disarray

Went offline for a few hours. Nothing much changed except the GOP's Crackpot Caucus doubled down on the crackpottery. Boehner's House of Dysfunction reportedly adjourned without taking a vote on anything. Hearing speculation they will vote on the Senate bill tomorrow but who knows? I suppose it depends on how well fortified with liquid courage poor ole Johnny is when he arrives on the Hill.

Meanwhile, the fearsome Huckleberry Closet Case** scolds the mean Democrats:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told TPM that he was "proud" of Speaker John Boehner's handling of the fiscal crisis but thought Democrats should have been more flexible with Republicans.

Said Graham: "We won't be the last political party to overplay our hand. It might happen one day on the Democratic side. And if it did, would Republicans, for the good of the country, kinda give a little? We really did go too far. We screwed up. But their response is making things worse, not better."
Kinda give a little? What's the equivalent of 47 votes to repeal Obamacare?

More flexible? You mean like bending over for the Bohner?

Pardon the vulgarity, but seriously, these people are barbarians, berserkers, vandals, vikings and pirates. Their version of democracy is a bunch of guys in horned helmets burning and pillaging America.

Think that about covers it. One can only hope enough people have seen the reality by 2014 to oust the miscreants.
