Then Shut it Down
Last night I was thinking about this scene from West Wing, which was loosely based on Clinton’s calling Gingrich’s bluff. The series wasn’t total fantasy. Pres. Bartlett compromised over and over again, almost giving one the impression that there was no point to winning a Presidency. But there were moments like this – good film making and good fantasy.
It looks like the House majority isn’t going to let even the lame compromise go to an up or down vote, because if it passes with more Democrats than Republicans, or without least half of the Republic, Boehner is done with.
So then, shut it down! Or go over the “cliff.” Oh right, we’re over it already.
Of course it does mean that millions of unemployed with be homeless soon.
