The non-treasonous right has come up with a compromise on debt: They abdicate their responsibility for the purse-strings, because Grover Norquist won't let them compromise, and they all signed pledges or something.
Shades of the half-governor of Alaska: I'm so pure I quit.
The treasonous right, meanwhile, is signing other pledges stating a heartfelt conviction that if you just don't pay your bills nothing bad will happen.
Seems like there's disarray on the right.
Three things can happen: they can fu(k the U.S. and global economy, or they can compromise, or they can abdicate.
The responsible ones have narrowed it down to compromise or abdicate, which of course means abdicate.
The idiots are all about the treason.
Seems like delivering on their rhetoric (surprise surprise) is not on the menu. Turns out that 60% of 1/3 of government isn't enough to make all the rules, their most heartfelt bumperstickers notwithstanding.
Not exactly a winning streak this week for the GOP.
