In which I thank the Crackpot Caucus

Brian Beutler lays out the stakes and the end game of the shutdown/debt limit insanity today and I realized we actually owe the Crackpot Caucus a huge thank you. They're doing what ten years of solid lefty internet activism and advocacy couldn't do. They're poised to destroy the GOP brand for generations to come. Or least expose its true motives behind the weasel worded rhetoric.

Of course, they still could come to their senses and avert the disaster but for the moment it doesn't look likely. To which I can only say, "Please proceed crackpots." And thanks for the help.

I get e-mails saying polls are running heavily against the GOP.

I want to believe them.

You know how I feel about polls, but can't help but notice majority of the polling is leaning that way. Still a ridiculous percentage who blame Obama though. So who knows what it all means?

I feel the same way. I just got one from Newsmax.com -- a publication that purports to be a newsletter but is larded with paranoid fantasy tales and right wing lies.

Of course their "poll" is only issued to subscribers to a right wing blog so you have to expect, and you certainly get members that say everyone blames it all on the Black Bastard from Kenya.

To be fair, I see way too much blaming on the left as well for stuff he has no actual ability to control but -- bully pulpit! As if that solves everything.

Yes, I agree. It's funny how they call him a tyrant but demand that he do things a President has no power to do either practically or legally.

Was just thinking of that last night. Many times they're effectively demanding he be a dictator.
